The Kauai Museum continues their Traditional Hawaiian Quilt exhibit through July 25. I toured the exhibit recently and was quite partial to the pink quilt in this picture. There’s a reason why: I’m the proud owner!
There are many historic quilts on display and each one has a unique history. The placard next to this quilt made by my Great-Grandmother tells its story.
Starting August 1, the museum begins its Non-Hawaiian Quilt exhibit through October 1. The second half of the exhibit features the modern expression of quilt making from the the people of Kauai.
If you happen to be on Kauai, and see my Great-Grandmother’s quilt, be sure to let me know.
