2012 Hawaii Quilt Guild Show

Right now, my quilt guild is putting on its annual quilt show.  Here are a few (okay, a lot of) photos from when I went today.

We are very fortunate to be able to hold it at the local art academy, The Honolulu Academy of Arts.  We hold it for about 10 days each year.

In the past, there has been a featured artist that shows their work in the lobby.  This year, the committee decided to feature our community service projects. 

Na Lima Aloha (The Hands of Love) makes quilts for various groups around the island of Oahu.

The smaller quilts are some of the quilts we donated to the tsunami refugees.

Wounded Warrior quilts – quilts given to the Marine Base Kaneohe for those wounded in service.

  1. I like the small one block wall hangings, I’ve never really seen them before up here. My wife has quilted all her life, but just big quilts for babies and beds. I like the wall hangings. Great quilts!

    • I like to make the small one block hangings. If you do a search for tsunami quilts on this site, you will see the ones I have made for this charity.
