    "Don't Fence Me In"

    Made this 36"x36" wall hanging for my son's fiance. She recently redecorated her guest room in beige, brown, turquoise and peach....and she is a horse lover! Quilting is galloping horses. This pattern was a real bugger to do - all the cuts, except one, was with eighths. I am so used to 1/4 and 1/2, it was hard to wrap my brain around it.

    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.

    It turned out wonderfully! I agree about 1/8. I avoid those!

    That's a really good looking quilt, perfect pattern for a large focus print fabric. Your color choices are spot on, I love how the coral pops the other colors, great "zinger" choice!

    You did a great job. And you actually have all the horses facing in the right directions for viewing.
