Sunset Birds at Kilauea Lighthouse Wildlife Sanctuary, by Edna Ray

I meet the most interesting and talented people in my classes.  Edna Ray, of Kauai, Hawaii, took my design class at Quilting in the Desert in Scottsdale, AZ this past January.  And, she has already finished her quilt.

Edna writes  “At long last I finished the quilt I started in your class:  Sunset Birds — Kilauea Lighthouse Wildlife Sanctuary.  I truly enjoyed your class and learned a lot both during the class and later as I proceeded to assemble all the parts and remembered some of your cautions which I didn’t internalize during the class.  I would have saved myself some grief if I had done a better job of editing my design before proceeding to sew.   I am pleased with the result and am entering it our local island quilt show later this month.”

When Edna sent the above image, I was really impressed with how she captured the ‘feel’ of the image that was her inspiration.  I asked her to send me that photo too, so you could see the inspiration image for yourself.

Edna, I do hope our paths cross again!  Beautiful quilt!
