Hawaiin Quilting

Quilting was first introduced to the Islanders of the Hawaiian Islands by missionaries in 1820.Then, the Hawaiians were being taught methods of piecing scraps of fabric to make a large quilt. Also, they learned "snowflake" paper cutting.But, because they had no bags of scrap fabrics, they began to create designs on larger pieces of fabric, using their environment: trees and flowers, for inspiration.....Click here to learn more and visit this excellent Hawaiian Quilting website.

Kwilts N Koa has been a valuable partner and friend to us over the years and I thought perhaps some of our readers might like to see what this very unique quilting website has to offer.
