Horse Crib Quilt-38"x58", all cotton.
Before quilting.

The Horsey Quilt left today for its new home with Noah, born July2. It is said that “the quilting makes the quilt.”  I machine quilted it using a brown thread, which gave some really nice interest.  Aside from holding the layers together, the stitches give the surface some design details and texture.

Brown thread shows up on the back, making a second area of interest.
