ART Quiltie and Pity Party Fan

Over on one of my Yahoo Groups I was participating in an ART Quiltie mingle and a Pity Party Fan mingle. I have never made a quiltie before. The recipient has a passion for crows. I was at a loss until I chose the 2 main fabrics. It seemed to take off from there. :) I am very happy with the finished product.



































On this same group, the moderator was hosting an ART retreat. Those of us unable to attend had ourselves a "Pity Party". We were to make either a pinwheel or a fan. Some chose to make an ARTsy version, some a humorous "pity" version. Well you know me.....I chose the pity version. I plundered through my big collage book of snippets and inspirations to come up with this. I used an old political fan that I collaged on top of. Enjoy!!
