One Night Quilted Object

I finally have a quilted finish!

Last night I was determined to get something stitched - anything.  The objective was to start and FINISH a project.  Being able to do it in one night was a bonus and a boost.  

It started with cutting, using the pink pad as a pattern.  Butterfly fabric for the top, with plain natural muslin as the back and batting scraps (yes - use them up!) in between.

I quilted diagonal lines in a lime/aqua variegated thread  and used extra wide double fold bias tape for the binding.

FINISHED!!  I have a new pretty saddle for the upcoming spring fun show.  Better yet - I have some stitching momentum building heading into the weekend!
