Ride, ponies, ride- far away!

     For my granddaughter's 4th birthday, she asked me for a Little Ponies Quilt (groan). I had a hard enough time making the Frozen one last year. We went online and she picked out a panel and fabric for the backing. My grandson picked out gorillas, but that is another post. She picked out all the fabric, including the borders and said it had to have hearts on it. I quilted it with a lot of heart motifs. I looked at it as an exercise in developing my longarm ability. Those pony eyes just give me the willies. 
My granddaughter's face is purposely blurred- she was pretending to be a cat. Tugger joined in on the backing. 
And had to try out the front panel

I took this one in the sun so you could see the texture of the quilting

Back, more ponies than a body can stand
