From the early influences of missionaries and traders, to annexation by the United States and subsequent statehood, to the current concerns of today’s quiltmakers, Hawaiian Quilt Masterpieces includes an incomparable collection. This volume offers some of the finest examples of the islands’ fabric art, highlighted by works of such quiltmakers as Elizabeth Akana, Sharon Balai, and Junedale Lauwaeomakana Quinories, whose clever variations on classic designs are spiced with subtle twists of modernity.

This book’s insightful and informative text shows how the designs of these extraordinary Hawaiian creations are grounded in spirituality, the indigenous flora, and the visual expression of history.
