The border fabrics have not only beautiful quarter horses on them but also cowgirls. Again, slightly feminine but not tooooo much,
This quilt was the first one I did with custom quilting, don't look too close. ;) It is quilted with daises and corresponding abstract block filling designs. The back of the quilt is pink with more beautiful horses and cowgirls on it. It fits perfectly on her bed...now if it is ever neatly made, I will take a pic of it in use and post it...don't hold your breath.

These are 'butterflies' made with partial Dresden plates with alternating light and dark pieces. The quilting got a little out of control but I was having fun with it:
We rent our house. Well, actually we 'rent-to-own' our house. We have the most amazing Landlord EVER. We had about a week to find a house, get married, enroll the kids in school and move in. Luckily we found a bout we both loved in about 2 days. We moved in in August but didn't meet the people who actually owned the house until the following year. They had a rental company
|Wish you could see the qulting...it was great!|

I have decided to go back and add in short clips of quilts, either old or new, that I have finished but not blogged about. So the next few posts will be short and sweet and hopefully have some decent pictures to them.
