"...insightful guide to the vibrant quilts from the islands by leading authority Robert Shaw." ~Detroit News

"Robert Shaw, an expert on American folk art and crafts, provides backstory and historical placement for each quilt, along with an overarching essay on the custom as a whole." ~CoolHunting.com

“Shaw details the history of quiltmaking on the islands and presents 48 Hawaiian quilts dating from the 1880s to the late 1990s. Each quilt appears as a full-page image, accompanied by a short essay, presenting gorgeous floral patterns and appliqué work that form a distinct, ever-evolving style.” ~American Style Magazine

“This thoughtful, full-color book celebrates Hawaii’s quilt-making tradition.” ~Generations Magazine


In a land where the warmth afforded by a wool- or cotton-filled quilt is anything but a necessity, quiltmaking takes on an entirely new and different meaning. Bringing elements of their Polynesian heritage to the American quilt, nineteenth-century Hawaiians created a distinctive and beautiful art form that is still actively practiced throughout the islands. Hawaiian Quilt Masterpieces presents 55 remarkable historic and contemporary quilts, all reproduced in full colour, which trace the history of the islands: from the early influences of missionaries and traders, to annexation by the United States and subsequent statehood, to the current concerns of today's Hawaiian quilt masters. Hawaii's stunning quilts capture the essence of the islands' overwhelming natural beauty. Early quilters developed the beloved Hawaiian applique quilt, its lovely floral designs cut like giant snowflakes from a single piece of cloth. They also created the unique tradition of the flag quilt, made to memorialise the glorious past of the Hawaiian kingdom that fell when the United States annexed the islands in 1898.

This volume offers some of the finest examples of the islands' fabric art, highlighted by works of such masterful island quiltmakers as Elizabeth Akana, Sharon Balai, and Junedale Lauwaeomakana Quinories, whose clever variations on classic designs and techniques are spiced with subtle twists of modernity. This book's insightful and informative text tells how the designs of these extraordinary creations are grounded in spirituality, the indigenous flora, and the visual expression of history. Hawaiian Quilt Masterpieces is the first new book on the subject in many years and is sure to become a standard reference in the field. If you are a lover of quilts, and if the idyllic geography and fascinating lore of the Hawaiian Islands lures you, then this is the perfect guide to the exotic and beautiful world of Hawaiian quilts. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

As with any skill or art, one should be surrounded with technical books telling them the ins and outs, of how to excel in their skill. It is also a good idea to start with kids books for simple instructions and eventually go to specialty bookstores to track down those elusive out-of-print books by masters of the craft that speak to us from the past.

"Hawaiian quilt masterpieces" is not one of these books. However, it does make a good coffee-table book has some great pictures of 48 historic and contemporary quilts, all in color and describes what makes Hawaiian quilts unique.

I find myself periodically going back and rereading their interesting stories.

Now that I reflect on this book, I realized that history of quilting is as important if not more important than how to.

Das Buch kam in der angekündigten Qualität zu mir (gebraucht).
Ich bin leidenschaftliche Quilterin und liebe Polynesien und Hawaii. Als ich vor 10 Jahren auf Hawaii war, habe ich leider kein Buch über Hawaiianische Quilts mitgenommen, haben aber sehr alte schöne Stücke im Museum auf Oahu gesehen.
Das Buch hier zeigt viele dieser Stücke und ist daher eine Erinnerung an meine Zeit auf Hawaii. Die Aufsätze sind historisch gut recherchiert und halten meinen Ansprüchen als Ethnolgin stand.
Die Fotos sind in guter Qualität. Das Buch ist eine Perle für Hawaiian Quilt Lovers und alle, die an Hawaiis Geschichte interessiert sind.

HASH(0x8926d624) von 5 Sternen Reccomended by the accidental quilter 12. August 2000
Von Mary Z. Cox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you love Hawaiian quilting--this is a volume you shouldn't miss. This is not a "how to" manual. It is a history of classic Hawaiin quilts accompanied by color plates that left me spellbound. The designs are incredible and well worth study. I've held a fascination with the possible direct connection between early Hawaiian quilts and the Baltimore Album quilts of the the Eastern coast. This may be the only book with color plates of some of these beautiful early quilts that would offer clues to this connection. My favorite designs in this volume are Anthurium by Mary Manoi and Coconut and Pineapple by Meali'i Kalama. It is of no consequence to me that this is not an instructional manual as I do not anticipate ever being able to quilt one of these masterpieces. It is, however, a one of a kind book and I urge you to treat yourself while it remains in print. Mary Z. Cox

While sailing on a recent NCL cruise ship I came across this book in the ship's library. Each day I went back and read more. The pictures were wonderful. I decided I needed my own copy of the book and I am very pleased I was able to purchase it and add it to my personal library. It hits all the various Hawaiian quilt designs with a description without boringly being over long.

I recently went to Hawaii and was fortunate enough to see some wonderful quilts. I ordered this book after I got home. There are some great examples from different collections. I've really enjoyed it!
HASH(0x8926a474) von 5 Sternen More in depth history of Hawaiian quilts 27. April 2010
Von Kimberly Wulfert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a quilt historian I naturally looked for that in this new book on Hawaiian quilts and was pleased to read information I had not read before. The introductory chapter is the history. It is an easy read, interesting and the author pulls from a variety of sources, some of which I haven't read in other books on the market about Hawaiian quilts.

Another reason I recommend this book is because the quilts included come from collections, public and private, around the US, not just Hawaii, so you will see quilts you have not seen before.

What I noticed was that the usual echo quilting pattern associated with Hawaiian made quilts is absent from many of the quilts in this book. Other, more familiar quilting has taken it's place. Not too much was written about this fact, which was the only disappointment for me about this book.

I recently gave a talk using the audiences antique quilts and sure enough, a beautiful Hawaiian fruit-flower type applique quilt, made in white on light blue was shown and it was quilted with a small grid pattern. I thought it was more uncommon than I now understand it to be.

The book is oversized with one large quilt photo of each quilt, of excellent quality, making it is easy to see the quilt's applique details and quilted patterns.

Hawaiian Quilt Masterpieces is a beautifully well written and photographed presentation of Hawaiian quilting. It is not a how to book but tells enough and shows enough for someone to decide whether to go further in either research or production. It is a valuable reference book for collectors and quilters alike.

This unique and beautiful category of quilting is not well publicized or documented and this book is an excellent review of the genre.
