Hawaiian Dis 'n Dat
Last weekend I came across an old quilt top I hadn't finished made from vintage scraps a tutu or "grandmother" had pieced already in strips for me. I finished it for the quilt show this weekend at the Church of the Pacific in Princeville. Since all quilts good enough to hang in show must have a name, I had to come up with one. The tapa cloth reminded me of party platters and the fabric of bright pupus or appetizers at a luau. This cookbook had a special chapter called "Dis 'n Dat" with little bits of everything contained in its' pages.I should explain "dis 'n dat" is Hawaiian pidgin for "this and that". This is a perfect name for a quilt with a little bit of everything in it including some poi colored fabric. The "Dis 'n Dat" quilt will be on display at the quilt show this weekend come by for a closer look. I'll even share some recipes from the Pupu Party Planner cookbook!
