|Log Cabin with Hawaiian fabrics, c. 1975, California|
The quilt includes a scrappy variety of fabrics, and many are Hawaiian prints. Dimensions are 90" x 101" and it is tied. It has batting, and multiple shades of olive green in the background reinforce the scrappiness.
This quilt is a good example of why it could be useful to recognize a sub-catagory of Hawaiian scrap quilts-- those found outside Hawaii. The fabrics make it Hawaiian, even though it was found elsewhere.
In most cases, the examples in my collection were found in Hawaii, but there is value in looking at quilts discovered elsewhere, especially when considering the distinctions between the quilts made in the tropics and those with a tropical vibe.
