Horses on a Quilt

Today is the start of the annual Pets on Quilts show over at Lily Pad Quilting! Everyone is welcome to share the photos of their pets posing on quilts and pet-themed quilts, if don't happen to have any you can still enjoy the cuteness and vote for your favourites.

I don't have a pet, but I do have quilted pets - like, about 20 of them:


They were actually meant to be wild horses, but for the sake of the show we'll call it a pet-themed quilt, ok?

I have already written about it in a previous post, but I thought it deserves another one, not just because of the Pets on Quilts show, but also because it got juried into a real-life show as well, the RDS Craft Awards show, which features just a small selection of various crafts, I think it was one of only five quilts there. It didn't get any awards, in case you're wondering, but we were told that getting there in the first place is an honour in itself.

Here we are at the exhibition opening:


The exhibition is still running till the end of this week as a part of the Dublin Horse Show (call it a coincidence?).

If you want to know more about the process of making, it's all in post 1, post 2 and post 3. And here is just one close-up:


Do visit the the Pets on Quilts page and enjoy the show.
