Hawaiian Quilts

Hawaiian quilts are amazing, and many of them are displayed as this one is--as a work of art.

Here's a little Hawaiian quilt history:

"A Hawaiian quilt first seen is rarely forgotten. Not only does it possess a strikingly beautiful pattern, but an unexplainable quality which originates more from the spirit (mana) of the design than the stitches created by the quilter's hand.

Hawaiian quilting differs from quilting which evolved in other parts of the world. Its unique method of design, intricately quilted, continues to be more of a form of artistic expression than a well designed utilitarian necessity."
