Horse Quilts





Here are two new quilts with hand painted elements, made in anticipation of the World Equestrian Games to be held In Lexington, KY next year. There's also a couple of pics of the detail of the quilts. They represent horse events of the world games, the quilt with the earth in the center has a background of different national flags & a red, ehite & blue border to represent this country's colors, the other (with the red x ) has a horse print background.
The panels are hand painted with textile paints & the quilts are machine piece & machine quilted.
They will both be shown at my guild's annual show May 16, 2009, Nicholasville KY
from 10 am - 4pm at Nicholasville Christian Church, West Maple St. Its just south of Lexington (if you're interested in coming to the show). Next year's show will be "horse" themed.
