Finished quilt, Shangri La...

On Friday night I had a sewing party, seeing as my sister was here, I had a good reason to get everybody together! We all worked on different projects, and leave it to me to not take one picture :( You can believe me though, we had a great time!
While talking away, I finished my Shangri-la quilt. It feels good to have this done. I stipple quilted it as usual :) The pattern is from Oct. 2008 American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.

Do you see Lilyanne helping hold the quilt??
We tie-died some shirts for the kids, they loved it! I haven't ever done that before, now we'll have to do it more often. Look at these cute kids.

Cute T-shirts ;o) I haven't tie-dyed in years, but remember having heaps of fun. And the kids look thrilled!

Hello,
My question: I see a horse picture in the back ground on your wall behind your kids. I was wondering if it is made from fabric and where do I find the pattern or a pic like it. I love it!!!!!

My comment: I really love the quilts you have made and enjoyed looking through your blog. The fabric groupings you have chosen are beautiful. I was looking for some ideas to help me with my Shangri~la blocks I bought a couple of months ago. Now I'm off to use the insiration I found here!
Thanx
