I machine quilted it in a random squiggly pattern. It is quite textured, and not perfect, but will be lovely and warm with cosy wool batting. The Crafty Neighbour is horrified that I would make a quilt for my furry boyfriends, but why not? Yes, I am a crazy cat lady.
It is going to be sweltering around here today. I had an energetic ride yesterday, so Zanny will have a rest. It was her first good exercise session this year, due to ongoing shoe issues, so she'll be a bit stiff today, possibly. Old ladies need to pace themselves. My butt hurts a bit from gripping as we cantered. She has a - let's be honest - horrible jarring canter, so it has not been easy getting comfortable and balanced. I had to completely relearn how to ride when I started in 2011, and a nasty fall set me back, but as Zanny is the best horse ever, I am so happy in the saddle.
I am so pleased to have another quilt finished. Reminder to self- I actually enjoyed hand sewing the binding while watching Masterchef last night!
