Oga quilt done

So finally the horse quilt is ready. Weather is bad so for now there will be no better pictures.

It is very special quilt for me as this horse was born right in my arms, I was the one who opened the sack and since then I watched the baby growing. Now it belongs to my good friend and I can assure you that Oga is one very well pampered horse.

The quilt has an official name as well - after our folk song "Tumša nakte, zaļa zāle" (Dark night, green grass)

I'm quite happy with what I achieved with the quilt. I wanted to concentrate mostly on quilting, and I think it has starting to improve. Still a lot of learning to do, but at least I see some light at the end of tunnel.


  1. What a gorgeous quilt!!!! So beautiful. I love the colors, the top and the quilting. I am amazed. Congrts with your finish!
    Love from Amsterdam

  2. Beautiful quilt! I love the colors and the composition. Nice work.

  3. Wow, the quilting really makes it. I also love how there are several fabrics put together to form the horse.

  4. What a lovely name for a quilt. You have quilted this really well, as far as I can see from your pics, and the finished thing is gorgeous. I love how you do your piecing - it's so individual and striking.

  5. Ann, you dream up the most amazing things to make into quilts! I adore your Oga quilt! "Dark night, green grass" - it sounds like a title that a horse would understand.
