Open Tuesday: Kalakoa, Discovering the Hawaiian Scrap Quilt

Talk about kicking off the year with a bang! My exhibition "Kalakoa, Discovering the Hawaiian Scrap Quilt" opens on Tuesday at Latimer Quilt & Textile Center in Tillamook, Oregon. The center celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2016.

The first quilt exhibition I ever curated was at Latimer in 2011. It was called "Small Wonders, Doll Quilts by Andrea Balosky" and it was a lot of fun. The quilts were from the collection of Merrily Ripley, and I produced a catalogue with photos of the entire collection and an introduction by the artist.

In 2014, I showed quilts from my collection in an exhibition called "Masterpiece Quilts, Modernism in American Patchwork, 1810-1970" and also produced a catalogue. Both of these catalogues are still available for sale in my Blurb book store.

"Kalakoa, Discovering the Hawaiian Scrap Quilt" introduces an eye-opening tradition of scrap quilts in Hawaii. An exhibition catalogue is now available in my Blurb book store. To preview or order, click here.
