    Directional compass themed horse quilt.

    I am so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been crazy busy, but I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite quilting jobs that I have done recently.

    Here we go! This is Jan's Beautiful Quilt! So there are no questions about it, here is Jan's description of the quilt in her own words!

    "The quilt is from a Block of the Month from Fabric Boutique in Las Vegas. Blocks made in some nice year….2008 or 2009 I think. They sat around quite a while anyhow. It was originally supposed to be white, browns and black. I thought it was way too stark, so I used the butterscotch for the background instead. I put the paisley in
    the border because I was trying for a tooled leather look. Not sure if I made it, but I tried!

    Setting is an adaptation of one of the quilts in Brenda Henning's School House Sampler. Center medallion is from one of Jane Wilson's patterns from the early 2000's, or maybe the late 1990's.

    These aren't colors from my usual palate, however I really like how they worked together. I was shooting for a Western/Manly type quilt. I think I made the grade, what say you?"

    Okay, quilt stats.
    Two layers batting - Hobbs 80/20 & 100% cotton Hobbs
    4 thread colors - mostly Highlights and Gold Metallic by Superior Threads.
    This quilt took me over 90 hours to quilt. I used 30 bobbins of thread, So Fine was my thread of choice for that!
