I am. I ordered some wood looking fabric to make it look more like fencing.

Darling pig, Red! I too like the curly tail.

Lawsonmugs, wood printed fabric sounds wonderful for the fence! What a great idea. I too will be making the fenced sashing but I'll be using a dark brown fabric I have in my stash. I still need to measure it, but I think I have enough.

Red, sorry to hear you had to battle Pneumonia for so long. I hope this time you really are on the mend.

I'm still thinking about the fencing also. But, instead of individually around each block, I might do it as a border all around the outside of the quilt. But, I am extremely undecided on the color. As I don't have any brown in my stash. I do have gray though. So, maybe gray would work. I will continue to give it some thought and maybe do a small mock sample to see if I like the color.

I definitely will be making her fence. But I plan on making a white fence with green beside it. Growing up in MS our fences were white washed and grass always grew under it.

toverly, white fencing is a wonderful idea. I have lots and lots of white also. Will give it a think. I am making this quilt very bright. So, it will need a little lightning and freshening in the final border. May jump on your white band wagon.

Judith1005, I have thought about an outside border also. I'm thinking something with flowers. I'm using 30's fabrics so hopefully I have enough of a colorful flower pattern for the "ditches" outside the fence.

Ooh, '30's fabrics sound lovely, toverly! (I love '30's fabric!)

I've been playing with different layouts for this quilt since I'm not that crazy over the fencing, particularly since I used white background. Didn't use forethought when I made first block and wished I'd used colorful skies like most of you did.....so, I remembered seeing a cute quilt picture in web abyss that framed each animal (I think it was animals)block differently. I couldn't find it and just created my own.... I trimmed original block to 10 1/2 and finished with borders at 14 1/2. I may use different size blocks throughout but I'll wait and see what the next few blocks look like...

Great border Teen, I think that is being very creative. I like it.
