Poinsettia quilt displayed on punee (sleeping bench) that circles the living room. This quilt is quilted using geometric squares instead of the traditional echo quilting like most Hawaiian quilts. Many unfinished quilt tops were also displayed.
May 9th this quilt with be part of the special workshop seminar on washing delicate quilts. My favorite quilt is this Pua Nana La (sunflower quilt). Close up of stipple quilting inside flower. A close up of echo or wave quilting on sunflower quilt. A beautiful green and white Mokihana quilt. Mokihana is the traditional lei material of Kauai. I would like to thank the Grove Farm Museum for organizing this lovely & educational exhibit of the Wilcox quilts so sad it lasts only one week. I very much enjoyed sitting on the lanai (porch) at the Mahamoku House with the ocean breezes dancing on the hand stitched waves of the Hawaiian quilts. The Grove Farm Museum & Wailoi Mission House are open year around for tours.
Aloha from the Mahamoku House Quilt exhibit.
