I am working on the rusted quilt entry again...

Cow Pony Quilt
The weaving is done and I am auditioning background rust fabrics
None of these really gets me excited...
How about using ALL of the background rust fabrics!
I folded them up into borders and pinned them to the design wall.
Now this excites me...
The "Square-ness" of this looks rather boring.
Time to Un-Square it a bit...
I free-hand cut with the rotary cutter and gave the edges a smooth scallop curve.
This adds quite a bit of interest to the center photo transfer image and also the boxy, square appearance is gone...
Horse Shoes on top???
Horse Shoes on the bottom???
I agonized over this for a full day...
I finally took a break and got away from it for awhile.
When I walked back in the Thread Shed, I knew just what to do.
I will post more photos tomorrow...
