essay
I was living in Hawaii in 2001 when I began this quilt for my daughter Karyn Lehmann's 50th birthday in 2002. I started with 9 yards of green and 18 yards of white fabric, and used 900 yards of quilting thread. The quilt took 15 months and over 1500 hours to complete. The pattern for this quilt was designed by 'POAKALANI' and is called "ULU", which is the Hawaiian word for breadfruit. The pattern is usually set in a square, but I chose to set it on point, and rounded the corners. The hand quilting is done in the traditional Hawaiian echo pattern. My daughters, Lorraine Blas and Nalani Alwohi, spent a few weekends helping, as well as some assistance from my granddaughters, Alicia and Ku'ulpo Brown. Patricia Lee Davis Tucson, Arizona 2014
