Quick as a New York Minute, this quilt can be finished in time for that last-minute gift. Sheila says she has, "Made so many of these fun quilts and have begun to think of them as my quilt “missionaries”, sent out all over the country to keep the babies warm!"

Sandra writes, "Animals make wonderful subjects in raw edge fused art quilts. I bring them to life with eyes that are inked and colored with color pencils on fabric."

This quilt, The Mute Swan, is derived from a Ken Miracle photo.

Joanne Baeth's quilt, Sunset and Sandhill Cranes, has won a number of awards including: AQS Des Moines 2009, Best Machine Workmanship, Denver Quilt Festival 2010, Best of Show, IQA Houston 2010, Best Pictorial, Road to California 2011, Masterpiece and Pacific West Quilt Show 2011, Best of Show. Her quilts are influenced by her environment. Here is what she has to say:

"I am fortunate to live in an rural area in southeastern Oregon with wetlands, refuges, forests, and lakes nearby. This amazing area is the largest migration route in the Pacific Northwest for over 300 species of birds. I became inspired by the wildlife and nature surrounding me and started taking photographs and drawing birds, animals and landscapes. My husband and I are in the outdoors often which gives me the opportunity to observe wildlife in settings that are different with each season."

Today's puzzle is not a quilt. It's the poster for a quilt show, the 2007 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show to be exact, titled Nature's Inspiration and designed by Kathy Deggendorfer. We just love Kathy's artwork.

Violet writes of this quilt, "The Wolf is a fiercely loyal and territorial animal. Wolves make strong emotional attachments, but must rely on their own individual instincts to survive. Wolf Abstractions was created in my signature Abstractions style, hand drafted over my own original photography and patterned by me. After drafting the illustration I sewed, quilted and bound this quilt in 3 days with the constant encouragement and support of my pack."
