Abstract

Kuiki Eko is a fiber art piece, done in the style of Classic Traditional Hawaiian Quilting (Arthur, (2010). This quilt is an artistic impression rather than a well-designed utilitarian home accessory. When translated, Kuiki Eko, means “stitching echo,” homage to the type of stitch used to manipulate the quilt’s surface. Inspired by the use of the echo stitch in Hawaiian quilts, repetition is explored through the surface design, motifs, and process of creation. The rhythm of the echo stitch is an aspect of this style. Just as an echo can never take the place of the original voice, this fiber art piece interprets the traditional method of Hawaiian quilting in a modified way. A sort-of 21st century offshoot of the original quilt process- another echo.
