Summer Vacation in Western Nebraska

This block is my first entry in a contest -- I used batik and regular cotton prints with fusible applique. My block represents memories from summer vacations in western Nebraska -- I absolutely loved being out in the Sandhills where my Grandfather grew up. He had told me so many stories that the landscape seemed to come alive. The yuccas, or as Grandpa called them "soap weeds" grow everywhere.
