Bringing elements of their Polynesian heritage to the American quilt, nineteenth-century Hawaiians created a distinctive and beautiful craft that is still actively practiced throughout the islands. 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.

Review:

"...insightful guide to the vibrant quilts from the islands by leading authority Robert Shaw." ~Detroit News

"Robert Shaw, an expert on American folk art and crafts, provides backstory and historical placement for each quilt, along with an overarching essay on the custom as a whole." ~CoolHunting.com

“Shaw details the history of quiltmaking on the islands and presents 48 Hawaiian quilts dating from the 1880s to the late 1990s. Each quilt appears as a full-page image, accompanied by a short essay, presenting gorgeous floral patterns and appliqué work that form a distinct, ever-evolving style.” ~American Style Magazine

“This thoughtful, full-color book celebrates Hawaii’s quilt-making tradition.” ~Generations Magazine
