Description

A coverlet (unquilted quilt) for my sweet girl's big girl bed! 

'The "Kihei Pili" is an unquilted Hawaiianized version of a missionary patchwork quilt.  Brightly coloured fabrics are pieced together from the muu-muu factory remnants.  "Kihei" translates into coverlet.  "Pili" implies a coverlet without an undersheet and used for personal covering.  "Pili" means close to you or next to you.
No Hawaiian child, by birth or choice, should grow up without having experienced the warmth and comfort of his very own "Kihei Pili".'
