Hawaiian Quilting: Instructions and Full-Size Patterns for 20
Hawaiian quilts, dating back to the influence of nineteenth-century missionaries, are more than objects of practical necessity. A form of artistic expression, they beautifully reflect not only the spirit of a people but their culture and environment as well.For this modestly priced sourcebook, noted needlework designer Elizabeth Root offers 20 Hawaiian quilt blocks. Unique in construction — and typical of Hawaiian quilt motifs — the designs are cut in one piece and appliqued to a contrasting color background fabric.
