I was asked by a fellow blogger if I knew anyone who could make a horse quilt for his 4 yo daughter. What do you think I said?
I wanted the quilt to be something she would like at 4 years of age and at 14 years of age. I made the horses in blacks and browns and set the blocks into stars of bright colors (pinks, greens, purples, blues, oranges).
The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. It measures 42 in X 56 in.
Here are some closer photos to show the horses and fabrics.
This horse reminds me of a palomino.
This is my version of the “old grey mare.”
Here’s a quarter horse.
Here is a photo of part of the back to try to show the quilting.
I received this tweet the day after Taylor received it.
@rlbates Taylor slept with "horsies" last night and dragged it everywhere she went :-) Awesome, nothing better than a child's smile :-) thx
I’m thrilled that she loves it!
