This is a lovely little quilt that Anne has designed using the iconic Swedish Dala horse as her inspiration; these are created in fused applique and combined with a windmill style block to create the quilt.
Simple fused applique, which Anne suggests you could fussy cut, create the lovely Dala horses, and then Anne uses the simple half-square triangle unit to create both the windmill blocks and the pieced zig-zag border in this delightful 9 block quilt, and there is clever use of some fabric to create the sashing.
Anne talks you through the fused applique horses, and suggests you need an open-toed applique foot, as well as sharing with us the stitch and threads she likes to use and why.
On the Half-square triangle units, which are wonderfully scrappy, she quickly reminds us of how to create two at a time, and then trim back so that each unit is accurate.
Anne also shares with us a quick and clever way to create the horizontal sashing, which was cleverly fussy cut from some fabric, but you could re-create this by adding simple ric-rac ontop of a plain border.
When making up the windmill star, do ensure that they all spin in the same direction, and for the border Anne shows you a clever trick to help keep the pattern correct with a simple stitch-n-flip block.
Also you could follow Anne’s idea of hand quilting the quilt (although she does say that it nearly killed her and took ages!) – but simple machine quilting with the help of your walking foot would work just as well.
