The South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild challenge was to create a quilt inspired by a photograph. I chose this one taken at Hanalei Pier a few years back during one of my treasured vacations in Kauai. The sunset was so serene and subtle this particular evening.

I used batik scraps and ended up with a bit more literal an interpretation than intended. It was fun to test out the gentle curve piecing technique in the water and sand area based on the demo by Pam Rocco at our March meeting.
Here is a close up of the organic straight stitching along the pier and some twists and turns throughout the sky and water. My original plan was to try a water style quilting technique that I've seen but that will have to wait for another project.
