Tiki A. M. : it seems a pity to slice and dice such beautiful shirts -- couldn't you just shrink yourself to size?

I'd break up the patterned squares with solid colors (or a very small pattern) or it's going to be too busy. Are you planning to sew this quilt yourself?

one quick phone call to my Mom, and the tiki quilt project was underway!



I just passed this message along to my mom, who has been quilting nonstop since she retired.

Something like this can be done by anyone with some basic sewing knowledge. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want!

Found at an Auction House in Petaluma I had ALWAYS meant to check out and finally did

for $175. It was listed as "Carved Totem Pole", and most people thought it was Alaskan.

I've got to do more research, but heregoes.

Awesome score tikimonkey. I would love to find an old Marquesan pole like that!

And Tiki a Mockingbird: I think the Hawaiian shirt quilt idea is a good one. Maybe I'll try to find someone to sew one for me.

Tiki A Moaikingbird,

That's a great idea! I've been collecting shirts that are not the right size with that purpose in mind too.

This is the quilt my Mum made for my husband and I when we were married. I bought these fabrics in Waikiki last summer. This is a 'tiki find' that will be staying in the family for generations to come.




Every one is a hawaiian print, including the white tone-on-tone print. I managed to find a blue print with tikis in it, it's neat to see them peeking out at you from the blocks and border. We designed the pattern together. The presence of white adds quite a bit to the colourful fabrics.

There is a quilt made with different coloured hawaiian print fabrics in my Mum's quilt shop where I work. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow and post it for you. It's a very simple pattern that lends itself well to many bright coloured fabrics.

the tricky bit seems to be finding some nice solid fabric for the back - in my daydreams, i find a huge dark dark brown piece of barkcloth with subtle little tikiheads on it. so far tho, the only thing i've been able to find is this. (it's about 3 feet by 6 feet, so not quite big enough. i'm not looking to make this a bed quilt, more of a curl-up-on-the-couch kinda quilt)



buying retro hawaiian fabrics on the 'net seems a little expensive, altho if i don't score something in my thrift store travels, i may just bite the bullet...

WAITAMINNIT, pleeeeease....before y'all start slicing up your vintage Aloha shirts, please think twice, consider their collectability, and spare the ones with Tiki prints.
They might eventually find a place in my upcoming book on Aloha shirt design entitled "The Look Of Tiki" (which will become LOT, I guess). All the Aloha shirt books out so far mostly ignore the cool modern graphics of the 60s and 70s, and I plan to change that by putting something out that makes a visual splash just like the shirts did!

got this postcard last weekend for a buck at a local flea market.


"Hawaiian Enchantment," postmarked 1951.

interesting, fact, the tiki in the background is the same as in the middle of the second postcard page in Tiki Quest, but it's a different wahine.

"It's also the same tiki (on Maui) as in the Boyd Rice article, and pictured on the back of some denny cd... Current whereabouts unknown"



...AND what makes this Tiki design even MORE interesting is that two of them were flanking the entrance to the ORIGINAL Trader Vic's in Oakland (BOT p.82). It proves that the early Trader Vic's decor, like the Tahitian/Marquesan posts were imported from Hawaii and Tahiti, because the American Tiki carving tradition had not yet formed. I wonder if we ever will find out who the carver of the these sleek, very modern Tikis was. He must have worked in Hawaii...
