Island Kids Quilt

This cute quilt is from Kapaia Stitchery on Kauai, Hawaii. (Sorry I don't have a better photo- the quilts were hung from the ceiling and with the fans keeping the shop cool, they were also moving a bit!)

They each had cute details, like a beaded bracelet...

... or button flowers in their hair. (I count 26 pieces the block above, and 24 in this paper pieced block, not including the borders. In other words, a lot of work!)

( Thanks Sandy, for finding the designer info! Lisa Boyer http://www.lisaboyer.com/
is the talented designer of this quilt pattern. It's called Keiki Hula.)


  1. These little hula girls are so cute! And yes, looks like lots of work!!

    I was too busy at work yesterday to find out it was peace day :(. Although I will say I didn't wage any war or even pick any fights yesterday. Minus the email frenzy from my desk for work-related stuff, my day was pretty peaceful. :-)

  2. I thought I recognized the pattern. If I'm not mistaken it's a Lisa Boyer pattern who lives in the Hawaiian Islands.

  3. I think I visited that shop a few years ago when my husband and I were in Kauai for our 20th wedding anniversary. I loved it. I bought so much fabric there and still haven't done anything with it (5 years ago). There was a quilt hanging up that was made up on Hawaiian shirts on a clothesline (folded shirts). I have yet to find the right pattern for that so here sits all the fabric. Just discovered your blog and wanted to say hi!
