Top 20 Quilts of 2017: #17, Julie Yukimura's Quilt

When I searched for Julie Yukimura, I found her story.
This month, I am posting a series of blogs counting down my top 20 quilts of the year. All the quilts were acquired by the collection in 2017, and they represent four centuries of American quilts. 

Julie Yukimura founded The Kapaia Stitchery of Kauai, Hawaii in 1973. The shop is the longest operating, largest quilting, sewing and fabric supply shop in the region. It started as a yarn shop, but soon, Julie's love of quilting took over. She made Hawaiian scrap quilts, including this one from 1977. When I searched for information about Julie, I found her story.
