On the Fence Post

Sitting on the fence post is my last big peice this year and it was a real challenge.  I wanted to add the little barb wire and feeling of an old weathered post in the woods or pasture.   The fines and leaves were the most fun, which is unusual for me, but they were actually the most interesting as they climb their way up the wood.

Its a larger size 21x37 inches so it needs a big space to really show off.  I used quite a few cotton fabrics on this and some batiks fused and quilted in raw edge applique.  Thread painted some light areas on the wood and leaves.  I love this woodsy feel.  Find it over on Etsy!
