84" quilt plus 21" pillow

Perhaps when missionaries convinced Queen Kaahumanu to adopt a loose, cool version of a Victorian gown, Hawaiian woman celebrated the freedom of the garment by presenting them with leis. (Actually, the women were so overjoyed that they would not be forced to wear the tight confining garments of the Europeans and Americans that they named thir flowing robes "holoku" meaning "We can run in it." In any case, the lei has long stood for gift to increase the joy of arrival and to lessen the sadness of leaving. Make this lovely Lei Kukui pattern for an entire quilt or use the enclosed coordinating pillow pattern a single pillow top. For a quilt with a border you will need 4 1/2 yards for applique fabric, 5 yards background fabric, and 5 yards backing fabric. A pillow requires 18" square for applique fabric, 22" square background fabric, and 22" square backing fabric. To place the pillow pplique design "on-point" use a 30" square for the background and backing. Pomaika'i! (Good luck!)Designed by Nancy Lee Chong.
