Hawaiian Quilt Show

This year I happened to be on the Big Island of Hawai'i at the right time.  There was a Hawaiian Quilt Show as part of the Waimea Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival.  The show was put on by Ka Hui Kapa Apana O Waimea.  All of these quilts are one of a kind and all done by hand.  In addition to local vendors, there was a how to Hawaiian Applique class, Hawaiian music, and Hula.  A very enjoyable experience.
Aloha and enjoy the show!

I was also able to copy (for a nominal fee) a large Hawaiian Quilt Pattern.  I do enjoy hand applique and this will definately be on my to do list!

 Lilia is the pattern I chose.

 A little bit of help setting up.

Tracing away!

Mahalo to all who have stopped by to visit this blog!
