    Horse Quilt Progress

    Today I got one of the pillowcases made for Mat's horse quilt bed set. The quilt top has been finished and is now over at Connie's to be quilted. I opted to have her add a cotton batting for me, too. I should have it back in about 3 weeks (maybe sooner). Then I can finish the border and we're good to go, in plenty of time for his birthday. BTW, he knows about the quilt.

    I was so happy to find someone so close to home. And at such a reasonable price. I'm thinking that maybe, depending on how this job works out, that I might have her finish some of my 1920's - 1940's hand pieced quilt tops from my great grandmother, grandmother and mother-in-law. I would love to be able to use them instead of having them stored away.....what a waste!

    And no, I didn't take any photos before I dropped it off. I don't know what I was thinking but I wasn't thinking about taking photos, obviously. You can see other photos on these posts: Here and Here.

    Anyway, here's the pillowcase. I'm planning on using this rust colored piping/rope trim as part of the border on the quilt.

    Tomorrow we're going to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival in Fort Collins (my bad!) Loveland, Colorado. Connie has a booth there, Sew Ready Creations, booth #505. Of course I'll pop in and say hello.

    Well, got to go. It's time to start the weekend!!!! Have a good one.

    Until Next time...Happy Needling!!!

    Thanks, Mindy. I have fun (and frustration) with it. LOL

    Judy, I will post the photos when I get the quilt back. I really like the trim too. Hope I have enough for the border of the quilt!

    Cat, what/who is in MN? I guess now is a good time to go. I hear it gets cold there. Hope you have a great time.

    As for Mat 'knowing' I mentioned it in Arizona. I didn't know if he would want it or not. He's probably forgotten by now, though. LOL.
