Weekly Finish #1: Free To Be Wild Horse Panel

 Free To Be Wild

Finished Size: 67" x 72"

I saw this quilt on social media a couple of years ago promoting Riley Blake's Back In The Saddle Collection.  I was immediately captivated and knew I wanted to make it for my daughter. Sadly, this was an older collection, and this particular panel with the black horse was nowhere to be found.

However, I found this panel with the running wild horses from the same collection and knew my daughter would love it.

In December, I decided to make this quilt for my daughter's birthday this month.  I searched social media for a pattern and found a tutorial for this quilt by Quiltscapes.

Luckily, I found the pillow panels from the same collection for the quilt's four corners.  Sewing the top was fast and easy -- just add strips for borders and done.

I quilted it with an E2E design from My Creative Stitches and used Warm & Natural for batting.

My daughter's birthday is next week.  But she came for a quick visit this past weekend, and we had a great time at the Eagles Final Tour concert for an early birthday celebration. I was disappointed that I didn't finish her quilt before she left yesterday, but she saw the work in progress and loved it. I put the binding on and mailed it out this morning.  My first quilt of 2024.

I'm happy to join these linky parties.  Be sure to visit them to see what other quilters are sharing.
Until next time ... 

Be happy and keep on quilting!
