Here's an idea for an easy quilt, part 1 includes creating the squares, front, and back of the quilt.
Kelly Frost, a textiles conservator, is invited to the Massachusetts coastal burgh of Fairhaven to restore the centuries-old Mariner's Compass quilt. But there is one stipulation: she must live and work in Grey House, a former whaling captain's cosy, where the quilt is stored. There she meets Tom Pereira, the caretaker of Grey House, whose heart seems as hard as the rocky Massachusetts coastline. Over the elongated-lit months as Kelly works to restore the quilt, she is buoyed by occasional afternoon visits from Tom and other Fairhaven town members, and is worn out into their lives. And each night, as she reads stories in a daily journal penned by Mary Grey, she learns details about her newfound community members that forbear her see that their lives are as vivid and interwoven as the quilt pieces she is working to restore. But, when Kelly discovers a truth about Tom?s heritage hidden in the chronicle, she must decide if keeping the past to herself is the only way to ensure the hope of a future with Tom.

PUULOA — Ann Milne invited me to her property five years ago to discuss revitalizing her tropical garden. Since then, the plants have matured, the waterfall, streams and ponds are flowing gracefully through the space and it looks great. Ann credits her two gardeners, Steve Breed and Grace Laird with making continual improvements and keeping it looking gorgeous. Though Ann says she has gardened all her life, she also insists that she never really gardened well. She grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, where the growing season is short but she was able to grow vegetables in the summer. Her husband, Bill, was an avid gardener who had an incredibly productive garden in Madison. It was through working with him that she caught the gardening bug. They spent some of their summers on a 10-acre forested Wisconsin resort they owned where they put in a garden of veggies and herbs. “When we got here in 1990, we were like kids in a candy store, creating a plant playpen filled with every tropical plant we could find,” Ann recalled. Though they moved to a new home in Puuloa 10 years later, Ann said that the Captain Cook property is an absolute jungle, today. The Puuloa house is on a smaller lot but has the added feature of a tropical garden that covers about a third of the property. The garden includes a waterfall and four streams, all with stone lined beds that run throughout the space into several small ponds and a larger fish pond. Though the garden was installed by the previous owners and had been somewhat neglected, Ann was determined to bring it back to its full glory. After her husband died, Ann needed a project and set about creating a beautiful spot at her paradise home. She and her gardeners spent many hours cleaning up the ponds and getting the streams flowing. Then she decided to cut back a lot of the original greenery and replace it with more colorful plants. She now has torch and shell gingers as well as sexy pink heliconias offering height while shrubs like the pagoda flower and a lovely red graftophyllum fill in the lower story. Walking iris, moss rose and the dramatic dracaena star of India also grace the garden. Bromeliads and agave line the streams and palms as well as mimosa trees offer some shade. The shaded upslope is planted in mondo grass with a colorful duranta golden dewdrop and poinsettia filling in a few sunny spots. Her healthy plants were growing well, but she sought out workshops and help from the UH Extension Service and other classes to learn ways to control them as well as their competitors and predators. At that time, Kona Outdoor Circle had a vibrant education program. Ann started attending their classes and gradually became more involved with the organization. She became a Master Gardener and served on the KOC Board as Beautification Chair. Through KOC she participated in many community beautification projects as well as their annual plant sale, Pua Plantasia. Ann sorely misses the education and beautification programs that Kona Outdoor Circle is no longer offering. Though Ann is still very passionate about gardening, she is also a woman with a diversity of related interests. She became a member of the Kona Orchid Society and loves attending the meetings and growing beautiful orchids. As a gourmet cook, Ann finds it important to use fresh herbs and has devoted one side of her house near the entrance to her kitchen to growing a variety of herbs. Thai cuisine is one of her favorites so she likes to have Thai basil and Thai ginger (galangal) close at hand. She also grows a variety of citrus trees on her property and makes lots of dishes with the fruit beyond freezing large quantities of juice. She freezes lemon slices and drops them into glasses or pitchers of water for a refreshing drink after a few hours in the garden. She often uses her lemons to make Greek lemon soup as well as Moroccan preserved lemons. Another somewhat related passion of Ann’s is quilting. She says her quilting ideas are definitely inspired by the beauty she finds in nature. As a self-identified “fabric-aholic” she is always trying to find fabric that mimics the vibrant colors she sees all around her. She shared one of her favorite quilts with me: a lovely tribute to the Gingko tree done in subtle toned block. Source: westhawaiitoday.com
