BEHIND THE QUILT Q Q THE DALA HORSE Q “Once upon a time, deep in the timeless forests of Dalarna, a cabinet maker and his family lived in a little red cottage made of wood. One winter evening before Christmas, as the snow drifted down and frost sparkled on the pine trees, he sat by the stove, enjoying the warmth of the fire and the aroma of spiced biscuits baking, and carved toy horses for his children. And so the Dala horse was born. Or at least that’s how I like to think it happened… My quilted ode to the iconic Dala horse is made with a Jelly Roll, and I’ve devised a simple trick to create the sweeping pine branches and steep cottage – or – roof.” – 5 From the Fat Eighth of red fabric, cut as follows: One (1) 3½in x 4½in piece.
