    This is a quilt that my mum has been working on for a few weeks for her sister (My Aunt). All of the blockes with horses on them are all machine embroidered, and the other blocks are peiced. We layed it up and quilting it today, so please forgive the pins in, we were still laying it up!

    So what you all think?

    Various designers....alot are ones that my Grandma gave to me when she stopped sewing, some are dakota, some I dont know the designer of. A few freebies too.

    My mum has done a great job on it, although she tells me she wont be doing another queennsize again! This is her fourth. She did stitch in the ditch, which took her the best part of about 8 hours to do. But it looks great
