This was my last round, applique. I finished it the night before I had to go to exchange them so I didn't get a chance to post a picture. This was so delightfully 30's that I had to do something to compliment. I had originally wanted to do an entire border of either baskets or butterflies. With the sun on the top I didn't feel that I could do anything along the top. If I had done something along the sides it would have added more beside the sun and I didn't like the idea of that either. I don't know where the idea for the fence came from. I think I got it in the shower. For some reason that's where I do most of my thinking. ;o) The size wouldn't lend itself easily to just the fence so added the gate in the center so I could vary the size of the center picket. I then added both some butterflies and flowers that would have been in the baskets if I had done a basket border. I like it and the person who owns it seemed very pleased.
