The exhibit is called "Hawaiian Nature Quilts" and features the work of nine artists.
The quilts come in all sizes, from pillows to queen-size bed covers, in both traditional and contemporary styles. Design themes center on Hawaiian plants such as the 'ulu (breadfruit) and wauke (the paper mulberry plant, used to make kapa).
Unlike most other art forms, quilting is often a shared activity.
These particular artists have all been involved with each other's artistic development for years, including Lisa Adams, Sharon Balai, Mary Cesar, Dina Kageler, Lori Pasco, Zee Sarr, Linda Smith, Kathy Tripp and Irene Tye.

Candy may be dandy as personality meter
Biters are typically male college-educated Republicans who earn $60,000 or more. Women tend to suck their candy, have two years of college education, are Democrats and earn $40,000 a year or less.
