These fences segment the pastures for the stables at Ridley Creek State Park. I have always wanted to put them in a quilt. Doing this little piece (6 1/2" x 8 1/2") gave me the opportunity to do it in a relatively short period of time. But one day I still would like to make a larger quilt.
This is the run-in shed for the horses.
and a close-up of the horse. I made the mane out of wool embroidery thread.
This section of the fence is right along the road that we walk along to enter the walking path at the park. Sometimes Bailey is not attached to her leash (shhhh, don't tell) and she thinks the horses are for her to play with. As she runs towards the fence, I freak out! She has not run under the rails yet.
A few weeks ago I made a block with my interpretation of the wisteria growing in the park. Unfortunately they ended up looking more like grapes.
I bought new buttons that were much smaller and lighter in color.
Now I am satisfied that they look like wisteria.
