The bold lines and choices of colors of this quilt represent Maui’s distinctive plant, the silver sword.  Once growing in such abundance on the slopes of Mount Haleakala as to make the landscape look like winter bathed in moonlight, this endemic plant is now on the verge of extinction and has aroused the concern of naturalists.  The silvery, hairy leaves give rise to the plant’s name, ‘ahinahina, meaning gray in Hawaiian.
