The top is finally finished – the Great All Breeds Horse Show quilt! Previously known as the black, grey and raspberry horse quilt which I’m making (in secret) for my grand-daughter Emma. After all these months, I knew I had to come up with a better name. Emma has ridden since a young age, and loves anything to do with horses. She requested black and grey, and with the addition of 18 embroidered named horse heads encompassing the many different horse breeds, I’m sure she will love her new quilt.
Photo time was not terribly successful. The quilt top was too long to hang nicely outside on the clothesline. And I had to be aware of the damp pathway underneath.

I’m also planning ahead and have got the binding prepared – all ready to apply.
This top is much too big for me to handle the quilting myself, so I will be taking it around to commercial quilter Paula who did such a marvelous job on my daughter’s 50th birthday quilt last year. It’s taken a while, and I’m really pleased that this top, UFO number 5 is finally completed. Now, what shall I stitch next?
