Dakota is Done-Race the Wind is Next

You've just got to love this no sew technique of fusing and cutting and ironing pieces together.  Whether you choose to go around each piece with a satin or zig zag stitch it's up to you.

Me, I like to think the things I make will be around for a hundred years, maybe that's dreaming, but, there are quilts that have survived that or near that, this is one of my favorite ones.  It's an anonymous quilt. PUT A LABEL ON YOUR QUILT!!  Then it will be able to tell even more of a story for history.

Off my soap box.

My next horse is going to have a combination of fabrics on it.  They are Japanese and Australian fabrics, with a little Kaffe Fasset for good brightness. 

Now, some of the Kaffe fabrics I've chosen are mostly black.  But, you have to have the darkness for the brights to pop.  There are some bright Kaffe fabrics, it's in the mane of this horse.

I'm a bit on the fence about the lion like dragon in the middle of the horse, but, this horse is the back horse in a pair of two.  It might stay or be removed once I add the second horse, which is visually dominant.
