The dice has been rolled this week and it has brought up number 2 – which is horse quilt number 2 for want of a better name. You may remember that last year I completed a large horse quilt for equine lover and horse owner Emma, my elder grand-daughter. So now it’s the turn of her equally horse besotted younger sister Megan to have her own horse quilt – eventually. As any quilter knows, these things take time!
I had stitched so many black and grey nine patch blocks for Emma’s quilt last year that I still have a large assortment left over. And that’s after making both girls a large squishy bed cushion for Christmas last year. It would be sensible to use these blocks in Megan’s quilt, I feel.

So I guess the first thing to do is count all the nine patch blocks I have tucked away and just see how many I have, and lay them out so I can get a good look at them. I’m be making a similar quilt for Megan but with different horsey accents – that’s the plan, anyway
How many blocks are there?
And I still have quite a selection of black and grey prints to make more blocks, if required.
I had originally planned to make something really clever for the centre of the quilt, but that has been more difficult than expected and hasn’t happened yet. But I’ll persevere a bit longer, although I may have to go with Plan B instead. Let’s just wait and see what happens.
