Take off your shoes, you are in Hawaii after all and step in the front door.
You are tempted to sit a spell in the parlor and have a cup of tea, but there are quilts to see.
Here's an Album quilt made by church members in 1851 from Norfolk, Connecticut and sent to Abner & Lucy Wilcox as a sentimental gesture.
A Cox's Comb quilt, I just love seeing quilts displayed on period furniture. The mosquito net reminds you that you are in the tropics and not in New England.
A blue & white drunkard's path quilt
Hawaiian tapa on top of New England woven coverlet. There are many more quilts in the collection and
the book entitled The Wilcox Quilts in Hawaii documents the history of the quilts in greater detail.
Tomorrow, I will share my pictures of the Hawaiian quilts from Mahamoku. Aloha
