Just found this. A bit late in entering but better late than never!
The design was based on the fences that surround the fields and coast that I look at every day. I hand dyed the fabric and foundation pieced the blocks. The quilting was influenced by the pattern of the wire found in some of the fences.
It was done quite a few years ago now and the colours have faded quite a bit now in the sun. I was a bit put out by this for a while, until a friend pointed out that it now has a sun drenched look that you would expect from being on the coast.
While in construction I had all the blocks laid out on the floor working out the placement, when my darling husband walked in and asked me how long my "crochet" was going to be on the floor! What can you say.
