Monkey Pod

The Monkey Pod trees with its large umbrella canopy can easily be found in Hawaii’s parks shading the locals and tourist from Hawaii’s hot sun.  The most famous monkey pod tree is  of course  the Hitachi Tree located in Moanalua Gardens while less famous but beautiful trees can be found at Iolani Palace, Nuuanu Park and even Kapiolani Park.  90″ x 90″ Designed by John Serrao Quilted by Eriko Furukawa Personal Design

 

Monkey Pod trees can be found throughout the islands unfortunately the Honolulu City Council  passed a new ordinance  that only indigenous or Polynesian introduced plants can be used in new landscaping.  While we won’t be saying goodbye to our trees neither are we going to see new monkey pod trees planted.  John designed this pattern after the beautiful Monkey Pod trees at the Iolani Palace. Eriko fell in love with the design and decided to quilt the pattern.  Every artist has their own medium in which to show off their artistic and creative talents for the quilters it’s fabric and thread.

February 19, 2017February 19, 2017
Aloha Everyone, We were all  aware that the Kanaina Building was scheduled for renovations a year ago.  We are now getting closer to the renovation date so we will be on a week to week notice for the quilting classes.  Please keep checking weekly for an updated status.  We will be at the Iolani Palace  through the month of June but haven't gotten any update for the month of July.  We have found a temporary home at the Bishop Museum when the renovations begin and will let you know when the time gets closer.. Thank you for your patience.   Cissy
