Both quilts include strips of Hawaiian print fabric, but I do not believe they were made there. The other day, when talking to Sandi Hazlewood on the Crafty Planner podcast, she told a story about a vacation to Hawaii, when she bought a bag of scraps and sent them back to her mother, who made a quilt.
I think these two quilts have similar origins; bags of scraps brought back to the mainland, where quilts were made. The strips are fairly uniform but irregularly shaped, and it seems to be a deep stash with a wide variety of Hawaiian prints; perhaps more of an industry-generated stash than a personal one.
