natural and unnatural worlds

My quilt design for “too pretty to eat” is based upon a trip that my sister and I took to the Pacific islands in the early 90’s. Even in the 90’s the ocean was becoming depleted of tasty fish and the islanders had begun to kill and eat the less delicious parrotfish and butterfly fish.  The inspiration for “butterflyweed” was a field of flowers grown by Pendelton’s farm in Lawrence, Kansas.
