My co-worker's horse had a long-awaited filly this weekend. I made a blanket to congratualte her. More for her to use than the horse. The only thing that depended on the sex of the horse was the color of the bow. Smiley This is my first time making a quilt that actually looked like something, so I'm pretty excited!

The whole quilt:

I LOVE it!  I think it would also be darling for a little boys room!  If I could ever get pregnant with a little boy  Grin I may have to borrow this pattern from you...if that's okay, of course  Wink

That is so cute.  I'm trying to make my first quilt right now.  I hope mine is as cute as that is.

bat057-It's almost as big as a fleece throw blanket, but about three inches shorter (I use the fleece throws to back all my quilts...very warm and the perfect size!)

moorelove--first off, you commenting is funny to me. the family who had the horse has the last name of moore! Of course you can use the pattern...I did a google search and it was the first easy horse pattern I found! I'm no good with patterns that aren't easy. And I do plan on making one for a friend's baby boy, though most likely not western.

regiknits--Yours will come out cute! Positive attitudes make awesome projects!
