My friend bought me this wonderful wallhanging while she was in Kauai last month and I just finally got a chance to see it. I have yet to figure out where to hang it. I feel just a tiny bit guilty buying something like this for such a ridiculously low price. I'm sure it was sewn by someone in China or some other very low paying economy. But I'm maybe in some small way helping them out by buying it at all.
Here is everyone, after barbecuing fish on the grill. These are the same kids my dh and I brought to Hawaii in March (we only brought two). They do love Hawaii and the water! Of course, what's not to love??!! Life's good!
I am hoping to sneak away to the quilt store in Lihue some time during the rest of our trip. I also did bring a little hand sewing -- my hexies for the Mountmellick quilt I've been working on.
The Hawaiian wall hanging is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
A beautiful shade of blue. Years ago, I was interested in making a Hawaiian quilt and even purchased a pattern from Hawaii....hand drawn. Never did make it but thought, if I ever did, it would be a blue like this.ReplyDelete
Very striking quilt!ReplyDelete
Does it have a "Made in China" tag or are you surmising that is the source because of the price?
My daughter and her hubby just spent a week on Kauai. They loved it!
what a wonderful wall hanging as you say probably the stitcher was paid very little for making it, but in the poor countries every penny helps to make life easier such a shame though they are so poor.We learnt Hawaiian quilting hen I did an embroidery course very time consuming my sample was a very tiny one!ReplyDelete
