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.
this modestly priced sourcebook, noted needlework designter Elizabeth Root offers
20 Hawaiian quilt blocks. Unique in construction-- and typical of Hawaiin quilt
motifs-- the designs are cut in one piece and appliqued to a constrasting color
background fabric. In this delightful collection, the designs for the 18-inch
squares are named after the lush and exatic island vegetation that inspired them:
see Table of Contents for names.
Blocks are worked in very bright colors--
blue on green, red on yellow, green on white--but of course, quilters may select
colors of their own choice.
The introduction provides fascinating background
information about the origins and composition of Hawaiian quilts. Full-size patterns,
an abundance of illustrations and detailed, step-by step instructions make it
easy for even beginning quilters to recreate visually delightful Hawaiin treasures.
