Turning Twenty




I finally finished the binding on the "Turning Twenty" quilt that I made for my daughter's riding instructor. I used a horse and southwest theme because the instructor just moved to Las Vegas to manage a large horse barn there. I have to admit this was not one of my favorite patterns. I chose it because of the large scale of some of the prints I used and also because it is supposed to be so quick, but it sure wasn't quick for me! Anyway, I'm posting two pictures, one of the quilt being "safety tested" by Jasmine, my number one quilt inspector and the other of it hanging on the fence out back. Unfortunately we've had 25-30 mph winds, so the quilt was flapping in the breeze and you really can't see the borders. I'll try to take a better photo before mailing it.
