Inspiration Sunday

I almost forgot!! To continue from last Sunday’s inspiration:

From photo…

to sketch…

to quilt…

It’s even got a rainbow, just like the real place (click to see this, and all the photos, bigger):

I like the little sawtoothy triangles too:

I’ve titled the quilt “Kunia Road” because every time I drive this road this is what I see. It’s working title was “the red dirt quilt” because that’s what I wanted to capture most. I even went on a special quest for red dirt fabric. In my stash I had found a small piece of shot red/orange cotton which was looking pretty great, but it wasn’t nearly enough. So, I sent a bit of it to Kathy at Pink Chalk Fabrics and she found a similar cross weave in her shop. Three cheers to Kathy for indulging her customers!

And yes, if this quilt looks familiar, it’s because I’ve shown it in progress here, here, here, and here.
