The “Great All Breeds Horse Show” quilt is finished, in time to get it wrapped up and delivered for Christmas. The last remaining side of the binding has been stitched down, and the heavy quilt was lugged outside for a few photos. A bit difficult as it is too long to hang nicely on the clothesline so I had to drape it over the fence, and it was still too long. But at last it it finished – oops, haven’t stitched the label on yet, but that will only take five minutes or so.
Great All Breeds Horse Show
I’ve made this for my grand-daughter Emma, and it will be a surprise for her for Christmas. We talked colours last year about a future quilt I might make her “sometime” and she wanted black and grey. So black and grey was what she got, nine patch blocks all with a plain black homespun centre. But I decided to add the raspberry batik sashing to give the quilt a pop of colour.
Emma lives and breaths horses and has several on the family small holding. So she will love the addition of 18 different named horse breeds, with everything from an Appaloosa to a Welsh Pony. These exquisite embroidered horse head blocks came from Kings Treasures.
And the beautiful freehand machine quilting was done by local quilter Paula of Rabbit’s Patch Quilting, didn’t she do a marvelous job!
