Blogger's Quilt Festival: Mustang

I took one of my dearest quilt friends out for another photo shoot today.

 ...And I decided to take Mustang, too.

I thought that the first round of pictures I took for this quilt out on an old barn (here's the link) were great, but I think I like these better. This quilt was made for a day like today.

I also got some feedback from the original post that a picture of the block would be appreciated. I am happy to oblige!

The final stats on the quilt:
Each block is 18.5"
The dimensions are 55" x 72"
Quilted in straight line with Aurifil 1147
Finished in August, 2014

Linking up with the Blogger's Quilt Festival, large quilt division.


  1. I love the third photo from your post today - the bright blue sky and yellow field complimented by the quilt is so lovely. A close up of the block is so helpful for understanding the quilt, too! Good luck in the festival!

  2. Hi Jill! Beautiful quilt! This has a great 'mustang'-, country- and even indian style! x Teje

  3. Beautiful quilt - great pictures too :)

  4. Really beautiful, a clean simple design but still with so much to see, I love it!

  5. This quilt is absolutely stunning. I thought is was woven instead of pieced. You did a wonderful job here.

  6. This quilt is awesome! You picked great colors and a great block design! Really stunning look.

  8. Love your color and fabric choices, especially the horses!

  9. Can you give me the overall size of the block? Its an amazing quilt. I voted for it. The color combo is fab - I'm amazed at it .

    1. Thank you, Natalie! Each unfinished block is 18.5." The blocks were constructed like a 9 patch. Each of the sections is 6.5."

  10. popping over from the blogger's quilt festival - LOVE your quilt!

  11. Wow, this quilt is really amazing! Those blocks look time consuming but the effect is so striking! Love that it is a traditional style but the fabrics and colors really make it so modern. Voting it as one of my favorites for sure.

  12. This is fantastic! Love the effects you've made with your fabric choices and placement!
