Annotation In 1985, an irreplaceable and priceless piece of Hawai'i's history was anonymously donated to 'Iolani Palace. That gift, which has come to be known as the Queen's Quilt, is displayed in the very room where Queen Lili'uokalani was imprisoned in 1895 by the Republic of Hawai'i for nearly eight months after her arrest and trial for treason. It was here she and her companions would begin to create one of the most unusual forms of historic documentation in Hawaiian history. Upon its plush and velvets, satins, and silks, they passed the time in seclusion stitching, embroidering, and appliqueing the blocks with messages that spoke to the hopes and dreams of Lili'uokalani had for her people. Adult.
