The first recorded introduction
of quilting to Hawaii was in 1820 when the first missionaries arrived in Hawaii.
Tapa cloth, made from bark of the Wauke tree, was the only cloth available to
the early Hawaiians.
Hawaiians developed a unique quilting style which closely reflected their own culture and traditions, giving birth to the beautiful, more intricate Hawaiian quilt.
In general, the original Hawaiian quilt patterns did not use humans or animals in their designs.
They instead reflected the natural beauty of plants and flowers of the islands.
The more contemporary Hawaiian quilts of today use more colors, more textures and any thing that creates a personal connection to the designer.
All the quilts on the following pages were made for
someone special (except those shown in our inventory).
We have a link to for those who have given us their special pictures.
We are grateful to everyone who has been apart of our home and thank you for sharing.
