In 1895, to save her kingdom from being torn apart, Queen Lili’uokalani signed over her authority to the US government. Subsequent to that event, she was imprisoned in her own bedroom in her palace–‘Iolani Palace–for ten months. Her closest companion stayed with her, voluntarily, throughout her confinement, leaving only on Sundays to see her family. During the time that she was under house arrest, Queen Lili’uokalani worked in crazy quilt style–the most popular quilting style of the day–and created much of the 97″ x 95″ Queen’s Quilt that is now on display in ‘Iolani Palace.
Join host Deborah Moebes for a peek into how the Queen's Quilt serves as a symbol reflecting the way sewing has impacted Hawiian culture, and continues to demonstrate how sewing can be an act of revolutionary identity.
