The horses are ready to race across the bottom of my Bird of Paradise quilt. I even started on the embroidery last night. I added a flower to fill some space between the horses. The space above the horses backs is just the right size for my initials and the date. I thought about appliquing them on but after getting some good advice I will stick to quilting them in perhaps with colored thread.
Jane's Threads and Treasures made a version of this quilt as well and I looked very closely at the embroidery on her horses before beginning mine. One more horse to do and some owl eyes as well and I can start assembling the top. Exciting times :0) (Of course I still have the side borders to applique)
