Quilt Exhibit - Hawaiian Flags

Recently, I visited a quilt exhibit.  The Chamberlain House Gallery at the Mission Houses Museum is hosting Hawaiian Flag Quilts: A Legacy of Patriotism. It is a collection of quilts from the late 1800s and the early 1900s that are based on the design of the Hawaiian flag. No photos were allowed in the exhibit but you can see examples here. There were about 10 quilts hanging thoughout the house. My favorite was a redwork quilt done on whole cloth. The exhibit has been extended for a few more weeks, so do stop in if you get a chance.
