Lisa, her quilt, me and my mother
This is the Hawaiian quilt featured in this months Martha Stewart Living. In preparation for the story I had to find a traditional Hawaiian Quilt, I wanted to show the inspiration for all of the quilt inspired projects we feature in the magazine. After a few e-mails I found out my mother's freind Lisa received a quilt as a wedding gift. Her aunt, Avies Corpuz, made it with the help of friends over many many many months. On a trip home I met Lisa and saw the quilt, it was perfect. She was kind enough to let me ship it to Manhattan and borrow it for a few weeks! I was nervous about having it for such a long time but it all worked out and the quilt is back in Hawaii. Thanks Lisa!
