Width: 10.75"   Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: Horses cut from a cotton fabric were appliquéd to a green background and highlighted with machine embroidery. The title was printed on an ink-jet printer and transferred to the fabric.

Artist Statement: The fabric had other horses, but I liked the idea of ones in motion (and one sort of thinking about it), so I cut them out and bonded them before appliquéing them to the green fabric, which also has a nice sense of movement. I want to thank Carol Vance, Arlene Lowe and Oleta Bright for giving me the fabrics used in making this quilt.
