This traditional Hawaiian applique quilt is done with colors more typical of Pennsylvania than Hawaii. I don't think I've seen another Hawaiian quilt with this rich teal background. It is stitched with echo quilting, typical of Hawaiian quilts, that follows the pattern of the applique. Hawaiian quilts are always striking with their strong central pattern but the colors of this example make it particularly so. Measurements are 74" square; very good condition.
