This is how things looked at 10:00 last night...

Cow Pony Quilt

All of the applique and machine quilting is done.
About 5 hours to get the leaves on and complete the quilting.

Today I will hand sew the binding.
Then we will go outdoors for a photo session.
(I hope my camera cooperates)

I kept the leaves close by.....they were a great inspiration when it came time to quilt the veins in the fabric leaves. Isn't mother nature wonderful!

Tomorrow I will spend the day doing a clean sweep in the Thread Shed.
Many fabrics were auditioned and are now in need of sorting before they are put back into the cupboards.

After a project it helps me to clear my head by cleaning up and organizing the Thread Shed. Once everything is put away and order is restored, I love to stand back and appreciate this lovely environment I am so fortunate to have and work in.

I do have to tell you doesn't last long!

I can't wait to get back in there and start on something new...

  1. That piece is just extraordinary! I've watched eagerly each day to see what you'd do with it next. It's just the right amount of interest, so well-composed. It's amazing and beautiful.

  2. What a legacy to your beautiful horse !!! Breathtaking

  3. A really beautiful piece of work....what a lovely tribute to Dancer.

  4. It's been enlightening to watch your progress through this quilt, letting inspiration move you from one place to the next. Love that it wasn't pre-planned.

    And I appreciate seeing your post-project, trashed sewing space. I do exactly the same thing, and like you, can't progress to the next project until it's all tidied up again. But what a wonderful feeling, that anticipation, when it's time to dig into the next project. Bliss!

  5. A beautiful piece-nice work and video. What sewing machine do you use?

  6. Hi Wen,
    Thanks for your kind comments.
    I bought a little Bernina Quilters Edition about 7 years ago and it has made all the difference in my machine quilting. I would love to own a George long arm sit down machine with a 20 inch throat........when we get our son through college, that is.
    I admire your work Wen and have watched your Holographic video several times. Have you ever done a portrait as a holograph?
