Item details

Pony Trails is a stylized pictorial patchwork block representing a little pony trotting along a trail. In a quilt, the ponies follow each other, head to tail, changing direction from row to row. The square pony block includes a strip of grass, which can be the full extent of the trail if desired. But the possibilities are virtually unlimited for creating a variety of happy trails from the images of rainbows, pinwheels, snow-capped mountain peaks, zig-zags, and puffy white clouds, for example. These trails are formed by adding sashing rows between rows of ponies.

Pony Trails is an asymmetrical design easily constructed from squares and rectangles. Even the triangular elements of the design are created from squares that are sewn to squares or rectangles. The pony blocks measure 8 or 12 inches square when finished, and the trail half-blocks (which form the sashing) are the same width as the pony block but half as high. You choose the scale that works best with the size quilt you wish to make. This 8-page PDF pattern includes many colored diagrams, detailed instructions and a chart of pieces needed for both scales of the pony block and five different trail half-blocks.

When you purchase this pattern, you will also receive my free 5-page PDF tool for calculating yardage, shown in the last product image. This Yardage Calculator will not only guide you in determining your yardage requirements, but it will also guide you in cutting pieces for your quilt from strips. You can use this tool with any quilt pattern, not just with my designs.
