Using appliques on quilts is not a new technique at all, of course. Fusible web makes raw edge applique very easy to do. It becomes a little more 'art quilty' if you combine it with some free motion stitching or embellishments to add detail. The boreal chickadee has stitching and a bead for the eye, the crane has stitching to add a shadow/reflection, (I also used a colored pencil to add a little more shading) and the raven has stitching on the moon, as well as the feet, which are small enough to be difficult to do with fabric.

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
