This quilt is called "Plaid Ponies", by Joyce Stewart (Quilt it for Kids Mag - 2001) but I call it Plaid Madness! Its all done with paper piecing. There are over 50 different fabric patterns and colors. I didn't have enough fabric to make this quilt, so I went down to a local home decorating shop and asked if they had any old fabric sample books. The shop owner gave me four discontinued fabric sample books. I was able to use quite a number of those samples... way more than I had in my stash! What made this even more difficult was the customer only wanted browns, beige's and tans... but.... in the end I was able to add a little more color! Not only was I able to use those sample squares, but the my friend also got some very high end decorator fabrics! Can't wait till it's done. Not sure how I will quilt it yet. Its a very busy quilt so I think simple is better. Close ups to come!
