I find that most quilts have meaning. Many of the quilts I create are to remember a time or loved family member. Rusty and Spirit are probably my last two horses. This should make me sad but I am so honored to have time with them on this earth. This quilt fills me with joy.
This year, Rusty will be 24 years old and still acts like a young man. Unfortunately, I lost Spirit in 2018 at only 13. Losing her was devastating and I know someday Rusty will join her. So, this quilt will always hold special meaning for me.
When I had drawings I liked, I auditioned them on the background. I like how they interracted.
After this, I added the other elements like the fence, bushes, rocks etc.
You can also see the actual process of these two elements in the videos below:
