This bilingual publication originally accompanied a touring exhibition in Japan. It features twenty-four valuable historical quilts selected from three Hawai'i museums and thirty quilts created by contemporary quilters. Loretta Woodard reveals the historical background and development of Hawaiian quilting, and provides new information about pivotal quilters and events that fueled the Hawaiian twentieth-century quilt revivals. Reiko Brandon offers personal portraits of contemporary quilters speaking in their own voices through interviews. Superb photographs by Fumio Ichikawa illustrate each quilt in stunning detail.
The book invites readers to enter the artistic and cultural worlds of generous quilters, most of whom have created these beautiful and exciting works as gifts of love and friendship. Quilters and quilt lovers will find it a source of inspiration, while at the same time the book provides important material for researchers and historians.
