  1. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. These pictures are marvelous!!! They blow up beautifully and the details... sigh... they're wonderful. I love those horses racing around the border on the original. I'm so inspired to get working on my blocks - to heck with Christmas sewing.

  2. It would be so great if it could come to Australian for an exhibition. Melbourne first of course. :)

  4. thank you so much for the pictures. I have been comparing the pattern to the original and especially the changes to the border.
    wondering what the original background is. off white? white? eggshell?

    I know the fabrics are aged but still would like your opinion since I am so jealous you got to see it in person!

  5. hi deb it is hard to tell the colour of the background. I noticed first off how much green was used in the quilt. I am going back to nyc in january for the vogue knitting live and will take more pics then. Trouble is it is placed so high up on the wall. i would love pictures of the top of the quilt on an eye level. not going to happen. i will do the best i can.
    thank you everyone for your comments. k

  6. WOW!! I am definitely doing the horses in the borders now - and with your photos, I can see just how much detail I want to add. Thank you sooo much. I am hoping to work on 2 or 3 blocks during my January holidays.
