The Cowboy Way
I stayed up later last night finishing the binding on buddy's quilt for his bed, a cowboy quilt. I love the Benartex vintage cowboy fabrics. They are so sweet and remind me of what every little boy's play should be. Anyway, when I finished I crept into bud's room and swapped the new quilt for the old. He stirred a bit so I whispered, "I finished your cowboy quilt and I just put it on your bed." He smiled. And then went right back to dreaming.
My quilter did an excellent job with the detials . . .covered wagons, cowboy boots, hat, long horns, and cactus. It looks fabulous.
I also finished this quick and easy fall quilt. My mom liked the sample in the quilt shop, so this is going to be a Christmas present for her. I have never been in love with panels, but have found myself purchasing two lately. They have some darling prints and kits out there right now. Has anyone else purchaed a panel lately? What are your plans with it, if you did?
