Spoonbill Applique

Rough, not yet quilted, block for a new Spoonbill Windows of India quilt I'm working on.  I love working with raw applique (ie the fabric edges are not turned under first.)  The lazy person's way to sew!

Art on a Hot and Sunny Sunday Afternoon

Top:   Collage based on a poem titled "Garbage" that came to me as I was taking out the trash today.
Middle:  Collage by my youngest sister, after a nice lunch at my house, also based on my poem.  The two other family members in attendance are depicted in photos in Elsa's artwork.
