Now that she's moved to Iowa, I wish I had made it in flannel. Brrr...
She and our girl share a special bond with horses so I knew this special quilt needed horses and I've been saving and hoarding this sweet fabric for years:
I used this pattern:
And changed it up a bit in order to keep the focus on the main print. Then I started pulling fabrics from my stash:
I love this part! After a collaboration with my favorite quilt adviser I settled on this:
And in no time, I had the top pieced, and backed it with a pink Minkee,
Sandy, Jackie's daughter quilted a design called Chantilly Lace. and I chose to bind it with the black-white dot:
Then life got busy and it took me forever to get it bound, but it's finally finished!
Perfect timing though because sweet baby Sloan just arrived and our girl has secured tickets and is flying up for a visit, a hug, and lots of baby snuggles in a few weeks:
This little pony quilt finished at 45x45 and I hope it will be loved and treasured. I love giving quilts as gifts, but they come with one caveat: They must be used and loved.
No putting them back for safekeeping. When this ones wears out, I'll make another!
