Message me for resizing designs or colors changes and turning designs 90 degrees to better use the fabric. I share an interest in fabric design with my sister ArtbyJaneWalker . I'm a quilter and have a love of fabric. I can set up photos for pillows.

Description:

11 different colored horses on a fat quarter. These are about 3.5 inches high and 4.5 inches long. The gray colors print much darker than they appear

11 different colored horses on a fat quarter. These are about 3.5 inches high and 4.5 inches long. The gray colors print much darker than they appear on the computer.

If you desire a smaller print feel free to message me. This is set at the original size. A smaller version is this design set at 393dpi; http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/944243. An even smaller might be better for children's clothing. For my first swatch I actually printed this at 675 pixels/inch with the horses at 1 inch long, it printed great. Though probably 450 would be best for clothing.

khowardquilts says: I have up loaded a slightly revised design with more space between the edge of the design and some of the horses to allow a little more seam allowance. I edited colors earlier, but I had not realized that I hadn't allowed enough space for seams.

khowardquilts says: This printed at 675 pixels/inch on a 8 inch swatch. This represents what would be seen on a 36 inch square of fabric at the original 150 pixels/inch. Some details have been lost on this small a print that would be visible at a larger scale. I have cut down on some of the contrast in colors on some of the horse since getting this swatch, since I felt there was too much. There was no change in the colors used for each horse, just the location and amount of some of them.

khowardquilts says: Well, I have never been good at drawing people. I use to draw horses a lot as a teenager, but I haven't done it much in years. I was really surprised that I manage to do fairly well with GIMP and Paint.net and a computer mouse. I did have a painting of mine and some photos as guides. The center horse is the original that is loosely based on my own horse that I had for 19 years.

khowardquilts says: I had originally planned on having them bigger, but I goofed on the resolution of the original. These would be a great size to applique to children's shirts. Smaller would be good for a coordinating skirt for horse loving girls. I hope to have quilt blocks available sometime. I proofed two horses re-sized bigger to fill an 8 inch space and they look fine. The original design of the sorrel in the center really printed fantastic bigger.
