The lady that made this sweet baby quilt has a whole closet full of retro western fabrics.
This one is sweet:
She loves them, but she also likes modern quilting styles and patterns; knowing that, I went with this dual concept and here is what happened:
She made a single giant log cabin.
So, instead of doing an overall pattern, I decided to quilt each color section in a different way.
Caramel-cream Minky on the back.
This is for a little cowgirl. The sides will be bound with regular binding. The top and bottom edge will have picots/prarie points attached so I left a generous unquilted edge for her to fold over.
When I got done, I thought this lacy heart looked like an old fashioned valentine.
On the large section of blue fabric, I simply outlined the flowers and leaves.
Jumping from one petal to another, I could go all the way across the quilt without stopping.
In the largest block, I put a border "Catch that Horse" by Anne Bright.
