Anthurium was created by Mary Manoi.  The applique was done in 1912 and the quilting in 1939.  It is 84" x 91" According to The Twentieth Century's Best American Quilts, edited by Mary Leman Austin, it is "atypical of Hawaiian quiltmaking in two respects:  it lacks a central motif and it uses four colors, accenting its basic green and cream palette with red and orange-yellow flowers."  The flower is based on the Anthurium, Hawaii's most popular flower.
