I just finished quilting this piece for my customer, Shirley S. This is an original design made with fusible applique and Shirley did a great job on the piecing.¬† It is 56 x 36 inches and will be hanging on the wall in my customer’s home.

This is a wonderful quilt and I enjoyed quilting it! There is a flange of the background fabric between the binding and the border.

Here is a close up of the quilting and the quilt. I did landscape stippling in the background with copper, high sheen polyester thread. The horses are quilted very simply, adding some detail to the horses. I matched the color of the thread to the color of the horses. The cactuses are quilted with green variegated thread.

Here is a photo of the back of the quilt. You can see the original design I quilted in the border. The backing fabric is a grey-black solid fabric.

Another view of the back of the quilt. You may be able to see the quilting on the horses.

This was fun quilt to work on and I loved quilting it!
