    I have usually seen this block done in Japanese fabric, possibly because of the origin of the design. However, you have put an entirely different look with your interpretation. It works very well and will be ideal for a baby's room.

    What a great quilt! I've seen this done with denim as the "back" piece. This looks terrific.

    Is this our famous 10-minute block as shown on this forum? What size were your squares?

    Sorry, this is not the block from this forum - wasn't a member here until recently. I found the pattern in a magazine which I cannot re-find right now:+(
    My finished circles, after turning right sides out, were just over 8 inches, and when 'windows' were folded in, the squares were 6 inches.

    I'm adding pictures of a single circle I had leftover- 3 layers: back, flannel middle, farm pattern top. I cut a paper plate for my template to get size I wanted. If you're interested, I can try to explain how each circle is sewn, turned right side out, then how to sew the circles together & quilt it. You may find an "I Spy" or "cathedral window" pattern in tutorial here or on another site that explains how to make these quilts.

    Slit where circle is turned to right side is hidden in 'window frame' fold when quilted.

    Finding so many different farm-related fabrics took almost as much time as actually sewing it - searched ebay, local shops & many new shops each time we traveled out of our area - thanks DH!

    We have Tennessee Walkers, so I'm partial to horses too. I plan to make a horse-theme quilt for my 8 yr old grandson who loves to ride horses & has his own.

    What a lucky baby. I love the brightness of the quilt, it is very cheery. The pattern is really neat too.

    Yes, it is the 10-minute block in our tutorial section, so check there if you want directions.

    Had to think a moment to know what you meant - "& the stairs as well" LOL We built our home 26 yr ago - not fancy, but it is very sturdy - prerequisite with 4 active children & all their friends. We've taken many snapshots on those stairs - easy to "line em up" for photos.
