Pattern from Vogart #267 - 1940's (patternbee.com)



This square will go into this quilt I'm working on:


I'm making 2 quilts for twin girls turning 8 in November. Horses are their passion, I think this will be perfect.

As a girl who grew up loving horses I would have died and gone to heaven if I was given that!

I love the retro look of the horses & that you're using the vintage patterns.

Hope you'll post the finished project so we can all see.

This looks really great. My mom was really into horses when she was young and I know she would love this. Maybe I'll make her something similar for xmas.

That fabric is so perfect!!

Wow! It is going to be so cooooooooooool!! Can't wait to see the end result - Vogart patterns are alway nice to see.

This whole set reminds me of the illustrations in Marguerite Henry's books about horses (she is particularly known for 'Misty of Chincoteague').

I am sure they will love it!!

BEAUTIFUL! My twin sister is obsessed with horses and has a few of her own. She's always loved horses ever since we were kids. She would've loved (and still would!) something like this. I love the fabric. Great job! Can't wait to see everything when it's finished!
