Bird of Paradise
by Bonita Walker
Bonita sent us this photo of her recently finished quilt that she designed in Nancy's first "Make Your Own Hawaiian Quilt" class at Quilt University in 2002!

Carol's first email to us started like this: "Just wanted to let you know that I think you've created a mad woman. Received the new (book and) video and am working on my second quilt design! The process has me totally captivated."

Here are three of her first quilt designs. She reports that she has ideas for at least 10 more that she is working to get down on paper.

Carol's fourth personal Hawaiian quilt design:

Me Ke Aloha O Maui
(With the Love of Maui)

by Carol Sicora

Carol Sicora's Me Ke Aloha O Maui quilt design"My husband and I loved the Maui Humpbacks so dearly and we visited most years. There is a mother, calf and escort whale in the pattern. I lost my sweet husband 5 years ago and when I go back to Maui, I float flowers in the water so there are wave curls and floating hibiscus and plumeria blooms in the waves (on the quilt). There is a tear drop cutout around one of the hibiscus flowers representing all the tears I've shed for him since his death. We both went through cancer treatments at the same time, I made it and he did not. We were married on Maui and his ashes are there now."

Road to Hana

If you have been on this drive you will recognize the "curvy roads, lush heliconias, palms, tons of flowers and rain drops. Can you see them?"
Carol Sicora's Kilauea quilt design
by Carol Sicora

Ho'okalakupua O Kilauea
(The Magic of Kilauea)

The images in this quilt design: the lava flows from Kilauea; lava exploding into black sand when it hits the ocean; the welcoming pineapple; and the maile leaf lei as the symbol of peace, the feeling we all get when we visit the islands.
