Something Quaint and Quirky

It was bound to happen.
I had to do it. 
Marry punch needle with quilting.

This little punch needle embroidered horse needed a home, 
so I stitched him a tiny crazy quilt, just 11" high 
and stuck him in the middle 
where he can happily spend the rest of his life.

The horse started off as a simple traced shape 
from one of those vintage cookie cutters I posted about here.

The tiny quilt is made from assorted pieces of chambray shot cottons,
 all in various shades of grays, with tiny red zig-zag stitching.

This was a fun piece to make, a little quaint and a little quirky.
I might just do some more.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Fun! Well done, the pony looks perfect there. I have been making some of these punch needle images after you turned me on to the craft, but haven't known what to do with all of them. Thanks for the inspiration again!
