Hawaiian Flower Inspirations 3


Plumeria (pua melia) are probably the most used flower in Hawaii.  Their fragrance floats on the breeze and is wonderful to smell as you are drifting off to sleep.  They were referred to a cemetary flowers years ago because that is where they were often seen. Because of this they were not used in lei's for many years. Now I would say the different species of plumeria are the most often used flower in lei's.  This was my plumeria inspiration in my Melia Beauty Hawaiian quilt pattern.   Visit my Web Site to see more quilt patterns or to order your pattern
