Quilts in the Garden on Maui

We were recently in Maui, HI.    Ain’t retirement grand!

A friend of mine, who lives in Maui, saw that the Maui Quilt Guild was having a quilt exhibit at the Bailey House Museum so we all went.  The Bailey House was dedicated as a museum on July 6, 1957 and placed on the National and Hawaii Registers of Historic Places in 1972.

The quilt exhibit was held in the gardens and in the museum.

Here are some of the quilts that we were fortunate to see.

I just love to see quilts hang outdoors.

They also had a wonderful “Redwork” exhibit.    Redwork is a style of decorative needlework that consists of embroidering the outline of designs onto a white or off-white background with a contrasting color thread.
