Zoo Inspirations: Fencework made its debut appearance in the judged show at Houston's International Quilt Festival in October, 2012. It is the second in a series of three quilts to be completed by FiberVoices members, Susan Fletcher King, Linda Teddlie Minton, Nancy B. Dickey, Mary Ann Littlejohn and myself. It was inspired by the fencing I observed at the Houston Zoo. Each exotic animal seemed to have its own unique fencing designed specifically for its own environment. I found it fascinating. Besides the safety issue, each added to the mystery that is the Zoo. I used Thread Trash to create a camouflage net (inspired by camo-netting used to disguise tanks on the open fields during WWII) thereby adding to the mystery of my own exotic plant.
