Cool DGD's 4-H project done

My 13 yr old DGD made her 4-H project this year. She is getting so busy with working on her horse in games and the other horse in pleasure, track and running, it is hard to get her to sit still long enough to get her project done. She decided that she would make pillows to go with her quilt from last year. She has taken quilts for the past 4 years. So since DH and I went to get his Model A out of his Mother's garage (estate sale will be soon) and I went to see my gravely ill mother all in Nebraska, we went on down to her place in Kansas. Our DD and DSIL helped us move the car and all my DH's model A parts for 2 other cars.
So we have been talking about what she wanted to do. We found a pattern she liked and took some of the fabric from her quilt and found a few others to help dress it up. I think you wil agree she chose well. The black batik with browns and beiges looks just great with her browns and tans. Hard to see in the photo as it is the letters and small border.
She had to quilt it this year too. I helped her but she did it. She did stippling in the outside of the horse design and did a micro stipple in the inside part of the horse on both. She top stitched on the horse close to the edge to make it stand out. The white stuff on her brown border is soap to help her follow the lines so it looks like a fence.
Thanks for looking. I hope you agree with me she did a pretty good job. The big Pillow needs more stuffing and to sew it shut but she has it done now.
