Hawaiian quilters have long been known to make special quilts for each of their children and grandchildren, choosing a design motif and colors that had personal meaning to the person who would receive the quilt. Until commercial patterns became available in the 1970's and 1980's quilters either designed their own quilts, or were given a pattern from a close friend or relative. No two quilts were identical, to honor the spirit of the quilter and the person receiving the quilt.
We suspect, since you are reading this that you have dreamed, at least once, of making a very personal Hawaiian quilt. One that is uniquely yours made just for you or someone you love very much. But then you thought, "How can I do that? I don't have a clue where to begin!" And, that is where we can help. We published our book and DVD set Design Your Personal Hawaiian Quilt just so anyone with the desire could design their very own Hawaiian quilt. Believe us when we say, "If you can cut with scissors, you can do this. No special drawing or design skills required. It is that easy!"
Is your daughter's name Rose? Design her a rose (lokelani) quilt. Was your son born on Maui, or is it his favorite island? Design him a silverword quilt. Is your husband an avid fisherman? Design him a fishing quilt! Yes, you can do it.
