Oh my! I love how she's quilted the water parts like she's indicating the depth. Thanks for this!

Very cool. I'm particularly enamored of "Pivotal Irrigation."

Wow, that's impressive. I've been sitting here making door snakes; which really is about the simplest thing in the entire world to sew, and I'm totally blown away by people that do things like that with a sewing machine. So cool.

Aw, man. I entered the links with glee thinking that the quilts would map Narnia or Middle Earth or something.

Still, v. cool art.

I'm actually looking for a quilt to replace a worn out one. But when I went to the "shop" list, there was only nick-nacks and stuff. Does she sell her creations?
