Cowboy Quilt

My cowboy quilt is near completion, three looooong seams to sew and it's done!  I still have two weeks to go before my son-in-law's birthday, so maybe I should try and quilt it myself?  Nothing fancy of course, some in-the-ditch and maybe some loops that I could try and pass off as lassos??

I'm linking up to Needle & Thread network and to Freshly Pieced this week! 

Here it is, almost done.  I may have enough of that yummy caramel-coloured fabric to add a border on the top and bottom of the quilt.  I checked with my LQS and they don't have any left, so I will have to make do with what I have!
Had just enough of the saddle fabric to add the large spacers between the blocks.  There's plenty of room for quilting here.

Decided on a bear's paw for the middle block, used up some scraps for the smaller blocks. I used the basic design pattern from the book 'Circle of Nine' for this quilt.



  1. It's looking fabulous. I'm sure your son-in-law will love it!

  2. yahoo That will be a perfect quilt for Stampede!!

  3. What a nice manly quilt for a very lucky son-in-law!
