Hi friends! As I really like horses and Dala horses, I made the Paper pieced Dala Horse. Before Christmas Julianna from “jednoigleg” had a ‘last minute Christmas Sampler’ QAL. She shared beautiful Paper piecing patterns and I promised to myself that I shall make the horse for the First Project in my NEW sewing room.
I love little dala horses. I don’t know from wehre the white wooden horse on the right is. Blue and Red dala horses I have bought from the airport. Old days I had to take several flights to go to Finland and when I was waiting in transit, I often bought small, cute thing – souvenir for that trip. These horse I have bought from Kopenhagen even they are Swedish tradition.
I should never think that some Paper piecing pattern is easy – then the troubles began and I make mistakes. But I managed to finish my scandinavian horse.
Few pics from the process …
This time I didn’t find inspiration for the quilting. Just couldn’t ‘see it’. So I just stitch some Lines following the horse and the borders. Then some stitching for few details and that’s it.
If you like to make this horse or other great patterns from this QAL, you find them HERE. Thank you Julianna for sharing these patterns!
I’m happy to join this week my favourite linky parties from the blogs: Quilt Story, Blossom Heart Quilts, Freemotion by the River, Sew Fresh Quilts, My Quilt Infatuation – all the buttons are on my sidelist.
Thank you for your visit and lovely comments! Sorry but have to run now to bracelet work …
