    I am a big western fan and love your quilt. You did a wonderful job. I may have to check my horse fabrics and so something similar. Thanks for posting the pics.

    Actually, I did have to cut some parts to make the scene flow. I think a golf scene would be awesome!

Can you tell me - when cutting your panel up, do you cut out the sections that will be behind the "framing"? It looks like you did, otherwise it would look distorted.
    Ok, so when I made my mind up as to where Was going to cut, I cut, then laid it out as it would look finished, using the strips and covering half and inch on each side for the seam allowance(the washing and ledge) and then stepped back and looked. I then started folding the cut parts and looking until I reached a nice flow with no distortion so it looks that the parts that are missing are behind the window panes. Once I was satisfied I cut away the offending parts...hope this helps..I am going to try to write up a detailed description of what I did for a couple of members who requested, let me know if you want me to PM a copy too.

    The kindred spirit the power hides behind,lol. They are just awesome animals, I love everything about them, after all, how many animals have the speed, kindness and physique of a horse? Even though, they could be trouble sometimes, lol.
