Remembering Barbaro


Here is a picture of my latest quilt. It is in honor of Barbaro, the horse that won the Kentucky Derby, but then broke his leg during his next race. He and his owners fought such a valiant battle, but in the end they had to put him down. Sad story but he will be well remembered!
This is hanging in Berea, Ky., amoung many other wonderful quilts at the State Extravaganza that we hold each year. I wish it didn't take such a long time for me to publish a picture on my blog, I would like to show some of the others.

Sheril, I saw this quilt at PIQF last weekend and I thought it was one of the most absolutely striking pieces there. Not to mention that I love horses and we were following Barbaro's story too.

I have an applique blog and would love to post a feature on your work. I know I want to learn more about how you achieve these beautiful pieces, as I'm sure all applique fans would! Give me a shout if you're interested.

Best regards,
Kay Mackenzie

Sheril, I, too, saw your quilt at PIQF last weekend. It was far and away the most memorable quilt I saw. I took a picture of it and have posted it on my blog. I also wrote a poem about Barbaro -- inspired by your quilt. I hope you don't mind. I gave you credit for the work and linked to your site in both places.
