Usually I walk right by the cowboy fabric, usually. My family took a two week RV trip to Yellowstone and the surrounding area. During that time, I popped into any quilt shops we happened to stubble upon. I began to see a theme -- Cowboys. In memory of that RV trip and a fun scavenger hunt along the way, I managed to gather enough fabric for this Cowboy Quilt. It seemed that a traditional patchwork was in order. I backed it with a spotted horse minky fabric that I just love. The weight and the softness combined - perfection. This is a household favorite.
The pile of my husbands retired t-shirts in my sewing room was beginning to take up a bit too much space. There were 40 t-shirts. FOURTY! So they went to the chopping block. I cut them into various sizes and played a quick Tetris game to line them up on a fleece backing. And tacked them down with pins, pins and more pins. About 200. Right now I love it. I love that it is not symmetrical or perfect, yet comfy. Wish this one luck as it goes under the needle!
