If I remember correctly, this quilt was for her niece. Leslie embroidered "The Divine Miss Truffles" on the quilt prior to my receiving it and told me to have at it. I "thread painted" the horse, quilted the background with pebbles and swirls and did SID along the "paint colors." The first pic shows the quilting up a bit better.
I wanted to add some extra texture to the inside of the ears, so they got some pebbles too.
Two more close-ups of the thread painting on the head.
Here's a couple shots of the back...
If only this panel had an Arab on it, it would be perfect! :)
