Mamo - Yellow Lehua

There were two types of Mamo patterns when my Tutu Correa quilted back in the 1920’s.  Sometimes the Mamo represented the beautiful Yellow Lehua Blossoms and sometimes the Mamo bird known for it’s yellow feathers and used to make the feather capes for Hawaii’s Na Alii.  This quilt is for the fragile Yellow Lehua Blossoms. 45″ x 45″ Designed by John Serrao/js642-bk7

Yellow Lehua

Did you know that there is a tradition that you never pick a lehua flower because it will cause it to rain and that the bark and the young leaves were used for various medicinal preparation.  Learn all about the Ohia Lehua by following this link http://www.instanthawaii.com/cgi-bin/hi?Plants.ohia  or click on the photo.
