Quilt Hawaii 2010
My first days class at Quilt Hawaii is from Meg Maeda. Meg is from Japan and quilts extraordinary Hawaiian style quilts. But for this class she was teaching us to make her Manta Ray quilt. Since we snorkeled with the Mantas last Nov, I decided to take this class in hopes of learning a new technique. This is a small piece, 12x12, and it is all done by hand. As Meg says, "Machine? I no own a machine, no. By hand." Big smile. Meg is so beautiful and so nice, and so very talented. But she doesn't speak a lot of english. But the class understood what she was teaching. Some day I hope to take her Hawaiian quilt class. She has won best of show at QH the last 2 years. This year Megs student and Megs quilt design won best of show.
My quilt is not complete, but will be one I finish! :)
