A Herd of Horses

Finished at last – it was time to take the horse quilt to get commercially quilted.  We dropped the “Great All Breeds Horse Show” quilt off at Paula’s quilt studio, Rabbits Patch Quilting.

We discussed what sort of quilting I wanted and tossed around several ideas.  Paula does marvellous custom quilting so we went with that.

At the studio

Paula had just returned from a Long-Arm Conference in Adelaide, and was buzzing with all sorts of new ideas.  I’ve decided to give my grand-daughter Emma her new quilt at Christmas, so there is plenty of time to get the quilt back, and sew the binding and label on.

“Great All Breeds Horse Show” quilt

Emma loves horses, and requested black and grey, and with the addition of 18 embroidered named  horse heads, I’m sure she will love her new quilt.  These beautiful embroideries of realistic horse breeds were purchased from King’s Treasures, a great on-line shop in the USA.

Your GDs quilt will be fantastic when it's done... A great Christmas gift...
I also went to visit a long arm quilter today. Don't usually but I just don't need the extra pressure of doing the quilt as well as getting other projects done In four weeks.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the quilting enhances the quilt. I should be beautiful.
