Square Deal


The nine patterns in Fellisimo's Quilting Kits.   

Set yourself apart from the knitting crowd—and keep bored fingers busy during summer downtime on the beach or in transit—with an alternative handicraft: Felissimo Design House’s Hawaiian Quilt project-in-a-bag, which includes all the materials you’ll need to fashion a bright and exotic cotton quilt square. Based on traditional Hawaiian quilting themes, which celebrate the islands’ native flowers and plants, the squares are available in nine patterns and colors, from pink (plumeria) to turquoise (ginger). Frame individual squares and hang them on the wall, or sew them together for a lightweight throw. Either way, the finished product will make a colorful gift come fall, when no one has to know you haven’t just returned from the tropics ($25 at Felissimo Design House, 10 West 56th Street; 212-247-5656).
