What are you most proud of? I think it recreates the look of the original , but we decided to make it more like a landscape in background. I hand embroidered lettering , hand quilted horse and background, free motion quilted flower borders.

Where did you find instructions and pattern for this blanket? Did you have to use a sewing machine at all or is it all by hand?

I made the pattern , my sister has original crocheted and embroidered blanket our mom did. She created a line drawing and then I created template for horse and flowers. I hand quilted everything inside white frame, machine quilted all the blue framing pieces. Hand embroidered the corner lettering.
