Vintage Hawaiian Quilt Series


#1

Aloha,

I have never been so artistically inspired by a tool !!

I am busy making Christmas, and all of my presents are doubling as prototypes for my Etsy store!

Here is a sneak peak of one of the 24 designs from the ‘Traditional Hawaiian Quilt Series’ that I am launching for my brand ‘Aloha Mon Ami’ which blends design sensibilities from Traditional Hawaiian & Modern French aesthetics.

This one combines “Proofgrade Orange Acrylic” and "Proofgrade Poplar Hardwood"with a PG Draftboard back and hanger.
Big Ups to @jbmanning5 for providing the SVG for the hangers - I love how they make the art look like it is floating off the wall.

Very pretty! I love how you’re switching the cutouts! :grinning:


#3

Those look great and I’m happy to see the standoffs are of use to some folks! Really like your mark on the back as well.


#4

While I designed some before you did, I have gone to using yours most of the time because I can cut a few sets out of some scrap all along. It is a great design and I thank you for it.


#5

One man’s scrap is another man’s treasure.


#6

Wonderful!


#7

Is super cool that you use the cut off from one to make a second. Zero waste!


#8

Wow, very cool! They will be great in lots of colors.


#9

Eh Brah !!! Local boy thank you so much for your aloha!! I am an island boy that had the misfortune to be born in the hills of Arkansas! My Nana LOVED the Islands and she passed that to me in song and culture at a young age - mostly mainstream - but it was my start. Now I go anytime there is enough money - ha! My wife has been dancing in our local halau here in LA for 8 years & is a alaka’i, I dance little bit but mostly chant for Kahiko and play ukulele/sing for Auana. We go mostly Big Island for Ah Hula or Merry Monarch - but our Kumu is from Oahu and her mom is there, so sometime we see auntie there.
Honestly I love Oahu the most because you can get the music and nightlife of the city but quickly go local and man you can’t beat North Shore!! Chee -ya!!
Sometimes I get to go to Maui cause my big bro’s best friend lives near Lahaina Town and sometimes has seasonal work at Steel Guitar Festival in July.

I will share more pics soon - I am so pleased with the result - I have been dreaming of this for the last 3 years!!

I love everything about this haha I didn’t think there was anybody else on the island with a glowforge! I’m on the north shore in Hauula, but I’m a transplant can’t claim that aina! :call_me_hand:t5:

@tennessee_reid Great stuff, man. Love hearing a little about your story, too. This company brings all sorts of people together and it’s cool that you’re mixing cultures to get some great art!


#13

Wow! Great Stuff! Thanks for sharing!
I’m actually going to the Big Island tomorrow for a marathon that starts at the Volcano and ends in Hilo. Fun fun!

@raymondking32 how long you had yours? I just got mine 10 days ago or so.


#14

I got mine at the end of September…I think. I preordered pretty quickly, so I was pretty pumped when I got my email for it


#15

Here are a few selects from the first production run. Learned a lot (like how easy things are when I can use Proofgrade :wink: ) Anyhow thought I whould share these shots - tonigh the wife and I will look at which ones become Christmas presents - the remaining will go up on www.alohamonami.com

I will be doing another run with new combos of materials starting tomorrow - plus I have a new ukulele design that I will introduce that will become a Christmas present.

Yeah basically EVERYONE is getting a laser cut gift this year!! Which reminds me I got some 1/16th acrylic and wood with my founders Inventables credit… Hummm… thinking I will try a couple of these designs in miniature to become earrings for the wife… No Sleep for Santa !!

The darkened edges on the yellow make it extra scrumptious!
