This week I managed to get a proper finish on one of my old wip quilt tops…finally.
This darling quilt has been made for a friend’s daughter who lives on a horse ranch. When I saw the fabulous fabric I knew I had to make her a quilt with these horses on it..
The block I used is a modern interpretation of a classic block. You can see my original post about starting this project from July last year, which includes a link to the block pattern HERE.
Most of the fabric is from the Michael Miller Fabric’s Wee Wanders by designer Sarah Jane with a number of different blenders thrown in. I love the warm colour palette floating on the crisp white background.
I must admit it was pouring rain this morning when I photographed this quilt, which means I did not get as many shots as I wanted. The quilt and the photographer were getting way to wet!
I did manage to get a quick shot of the quilt back which uses some of the left over pieces of Wee Wanders and Kona Snow. To finish up I used Kona Flame, a wonderful tomato red, for the binding.
Pattern: Rolling Stone – traditional and paper piecing
Fabric: Wee Wanders by Michael Miller
Size: 55 inch x 55 inches

I love this quilt so much! I need to buy this fabric. And your sweet quilt labels. Such a great finish!
Thanks Ashely… it is nice to have you back blogging…you were missed.
Ravishing! I love the red/pink colour combination.
Look at you, finishing up WIPs all over the place! You put us to shame, such an amazing output… This one’s gorgeous, I always find your colours inspiring.
Thanks Kate…I also managed to finish your cushion cover…now I just have to remember to get to the post office!
Oooh! So exciting! I just went to Spotlight and spent my birthday gift card on some gorgeous solid jewel colour fat quarters for my niece’s wedding quilt, and I thought of you as I picked up the violet, pink and burnt orange!
Gorgeous! I love having actual full-sized quilt finishes! 🙂 This is a gorgeous one. I am on the hunt for a pink baby quilt pattern to make for my sister-in-law who is pink-obsessed AND expecting a baby girl in early summer. I may have to borrow this idea 😉
The Wee Wander line is such a great print selection, and I love how these blocks really show off the prints. I bet this young lady is going to love the quilt so much!
Gorgeous. I like how you butted the blocks together with no sashing.
Lisa they seemed to fit nicely, but if I do the quilt again I think I will look at maybe sashing around the outside of the blocks…maybe!
I love this one! It totally reminds me of an antique quilt that I have!
This is a really lovely quilt! The block design was a great choice to show off those horses 🙂
What a gorgeous quilt! This fabric is so well suited to this pattern!
Such a pretty quilt, and I love how you use the extra fabric on the back. Nice finish.
Well done on a finish. I still think this is a perfect quilt to use feature prints in largish areas. (Who wants a headless horse?) Lovely.
