FESTIVAL ENTRY


This quilt is named Mother's Love and is the latest in a series of horse quilts. I live in Lexington, Ky. and in late September and October we will be hosting the World Equestrian Games. I have made a number of quilts and they are going to be featured in the Main Gallery at our main library during the time that the games are going on. The technique is called Stained Glass Applique. I have been teaching the technique and also offer the class on the internet.
