Today is the day to let you all know what the main subject matter is for this quilt. It is this team of horses in their harnesses. A friend of mine has a friend who owns these two beauties and she took a photo over a year ago of them and gave me permission to use it if I wanted to. I have saved it until now when I knew what setting I wanted them in. So I sketched them on tissue and now will attempt to recreate them in fabric. This will take some time as you can see there it a lot of detail. I will take photos as I go to show you the good the bad and the ugly depending on how it goes.
Debbie, you asked to see a closeup of my sunflower center and how I am quilting it. I chose to allow the fabric to do most of the work and just quilt circles throughout the center.
Hope all of you are warm...we are in a cold spell....tonight -21 degrees. Yikes!
