Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along - Dala Horse

Today is the first day in April, and I promise, no April Fool's jokes will be played here today!  Here's where we are so far on our Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along...

 

This month, we're working on the Dala Horse.   Here is Julianna's version...

And here's what she had to say about the Dala Horse:

The origins of Dala Horse are well known: it's Scandinavian icon. I knew that it's well-loved by quilters, so I have to include it in the quilt patterns (good news is that Dala Horse will be one of the 4 patterns available also in bigger size). What I didn't know is that it was on the list of prohibited items, but it was long time ago, so now we can admire it peacefully.

I had never heard of the Dala Horse so this will definitely give our quilts an international flair!  

So here's a link to Julianna's page about the Dala Horse where she links to her shop with the pattern.  And just in case you are having trouble finding it, I've included it as a PDF here.

Come grab a button and play along!  It is definitely not too late to join in the fun.  And remember to come back at the end of the month and link up your completed Dala Horses!

I think the horse is the best yet! Though I am still partial to the bell too.

Seeing these blocks come together and finished make them so much prettier than the sketches. Your blocks are gorgeous!
