The Back Story:

KIELE ONAONA (Fragrant Gardenias)  

Hawaii’s quilts capture the essence of the islands’ overwhelming natural beauty as well as its people’s legendary grace and charm.  In a land where the warmth afforded by a wool or cotton filled quilt is anything but a necessity, quilt making immediately became an abstract art form, as well as an expression of love for land and sea, which nourishes us all.

The artist states “My home is at about 9000 foot elevation and the climate is cool and misty.  Gardenias do especially well here and grow in profusion all around my home.   …their fragrance surrounds and encompasses you into the pleasant relaxation at the end of every day.  This quilt was made for my second daughter whose Hawaiian name translates to mean beautiful flower.”
