cowboy up.

by @according2kelly on April 24, 2008

thought i’d take a moment to document one of my more recent adventures in quilting (click on picture to enlarge it). the fabric for this quilt have been sitting in my closet for over a year. luckily, some gals & i threw a cowboy themed baby shower & that was all i needed to get my butt in gear & whip this bad boy up. although, i did experience a few minor set-backs. for example, while cutting my fabric i realized i didn’t have enough of the main “cowboy” fabric. fortunately for me, at that exact aha! moment, a girlfriend was visiting of of the fabric meccas of the world. unfortunately though, they didn’t have my exact fabric, so i crossed my fingers, said a little prayer, and told her just to pick me up any cowboy fabric that had some red it in. amazingly enough, it all worked out in the end. now, i just have to keep the scissors out of gavin’s hands.

I grew up watching cowboys on TV, and playing cowboys with T. I am glad a new generation is enjoying the genre. Your boys seem made to ride bucking broncos and chase the bad guys off the ranch!

Love this. There is such cute cowboy fabric out there. I have been wanting to make my husband a cowboy quilt, as his nickname growing up was "little cowboy". I love the squares pattern. I seem to keep doing the same ol' patch pattern. I may follow this one!
