THE TEAM

 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!

Thank you for the closeup. From the other photo it looked like you did small dots, so your technique with that fabric is a great idea. I will have to think of that when I try some flowers. I can imagine the work that will go into the horses, but I know it will be beautifully done.

I have checked several forecasts for your area and find nothing any where near your claim of -21F. More like 9°F. Saturday the low may be -7°F. Brrrrr. Stay warm.
