Laurel Burch's Horse quilt for Mary
Mary used the Laurel Burch horse collection to make this wonderful quilt for the lady that feeds her horse. It is on point with some black fabric with gold flecks as setting triangles. The back is lime-green.
I drew some of the horse heads and quilt those into the white blocks. I used the Norma Sharp Variegated Shell block set from Simple Quilting stitches for the green blocks. The motif reminded me of horses hooves. I put angular lines in the setting triangles; very simple but gave some nice texture to the triangles.
I used Rheingold thread on top and PermaCore Spring Green TEX 30 on the back and Quilter's Dream Puff batting. This is my first time using Rheingold thread. It gives some wonderful sparkle to the quilt which gold well with the Laurel Burch gold touches. The thread handles well and quilted like silk.
My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
