Deana: A little more progress on the horse among other things...

I finally have a photo to show some progress on the horse quilt.  I like the way the circle breaks into the blue border, but I have yet to stitch those two overlaps down.  The borders are laid out, not sewn on.  I wanted to see what it looks like so far.  I still have much applique' work to do; I plan to do silhouettes of cowboys and horses in the gold border followed by a final pieced border.  I think I am liking it.  I am realizing that there is much space for quilting, so I'd better put on my thinking cap for quilting ideas.


I am also working hard on the November row in the Quilter's Garden swap.  There are just some final touches and decisions I need to make.  I generally like to post the new month by now, but the design just isn't quite where I want it yet.

Linking up today with:

This is a fabulous quilt. You have done such a great job on it that the whole head of the horse looks 3-D. Very impressive!

It just gets more gorgeous every time I look at it Deana! I cannot wait to see the silhouettes you make for the border!
