Fast Horses

I’ve got a finished quilt to show you today !

For me, this quilt is all about the horses. I bought this collection of Mustang by Melody Miller just for those wild galloping beauties. The arrows, flowers, dots, stars and bees all play a great supporting role but the horses have my heart. You see, a long long time ago I had my own Mustang. It had a 302 V8 and 4 sporty wheels. I rolled down the windows and the wind blew through my hair and I had a wild carefree ride ! It was a fast horse that carried me to many interesting places.

I started this quilt using a package of 40 10″ squares. I singled out some of my favourite prints to leave whole and cut them down to 8.5″. The remaining squares were made into half square triangles and then a mish-mash of hour glass blocks that measure 8.5″. I used the cotton and steel OXO print in navy for the binding and realized a bit too late that the white x’s only show up on about half of the front of the quilt… hmmm. Not sure if I’m going to do anything about this or not…

    Wow, this is bright and colorful. Love the design too. Some squares and some QSTs make for a fun layout. Your fabric choices are spot-on.
