Cowboys, Cowboys, Cowboys!!

This one came from Deanna--isn't this adorable???? Turns out Deanna was a few years behind me at Big Valley High School. She and I never really knew each other while in school, but reconnected due to a common FB friend.  That is one thing I really love about FB--staying in touch and connecting, albeit remotely, with friends.

This is for Deanna's grandson. Its one of those quilts that when you wash it, the seams fray. (I hate to admit it, but I initially thought there was something wrong with the fabric until I saw that the seams weren't enclosed for a reason. I'm a bit slow at times!! *shrug*)

We kept this quilting simple, mimicking the pattern and what it showed. Every other block has a cowboy in it and they're all named! Gus was my fave, of course, since I used to have a horse named Gus. So darn cute!!!!

The back was plain fabric so the quilting, although simple, really showed up nicely.

If you've been reading my blog for long, you'll know that I like to play a bit. I just couldn't help playing around in the border a bit!!

Thanks for having a look!!
