Flying Horse

This is my fabric postcard for SPA challenge "Fabric". This is a photo of a section of an art quilt that I have been working on (forever) . This section of quilt is made up of Batik fabrics (Andover), decorative machine stitching and an enamel flying horse piece that I found at a bead show. I love to sew but it is so hard to get into it in the summer. Once fall rolls around I will try to get back to it. I started this quilt long before I was blogging- so we'll see!

  13. I commented on this earlier, but I think my comment went into cyberspace. This is lovely, Lori, and the beautiful golden fabric in the background of the flying horse somehow had me humming "Old Buttermilk Sky". Is anyone else old enough to remember that song?
