my daughter is a horse lover (also a pink lover), and has been begging me to make her a "horse blanket" for at least a year. Her 6th birthday was last week, so I surprised her with this quilt.
She only kind of cared. I guess a quilt is only a little exciting to a 6 year old.
I collected as many horse prints as I could find, and struggled with a design that would look good with all the prints (many different styles) and finally decided on a wonky star quilt. I used several different pinks for the background, and think it looks okay. Some of the busy pinks are too much, but I was using my scraps, so i'm happy with it..
I found the backing print a while ago knowing she would love it. It's my favorite part.
I LOVE this print (stable mates by alexander henry). can you tell she likes pink?
wait, the backing isn't my favorite, the binding is. Lately I have really been loving white striped bindings. LOVING them so much.
