I wanted to do
quilts that reflected the flora and fauna of the El Paso, Texas region.
This quilt is based on the Oha'i ali'i plant which is also called
Caesalpinia pulcherrima. This plant grows all over El Paso. I did not even
know it had a Hawaiian name until I was searching for information on the
Red Bird of Paradise Caesalpinia pulcherrima
