When I made this quilt I was looking for a traditional look to go with the 1930s fabrics. I like Grandma's Flower Garden quilts, and I like making the centers of the flowers, but not so much all the other pieces to bind it all together. So I made just the centers and appliqued them down onto 6-1/2" white squares. The pony blocks are 12" finished blocks. This setting could be used for any appliques that fit on 12" blocks... it could be cats, dogs, or bunnies!

I think I'm addicted to those 1930's repros. I don't even like horses, but I love that quilt!
