Lil' Cowboy Blue

Lil Cowboy Blue
Come swing your rope,
The cows in the meadow
Better hit a lope.

Where's the lil boy that looks after the beast?
Nodding in his saddle fast asleep!








Another finish! This is a baby quilt for friends - who are of course having a boy and live on a ranch!
Simple machine quilting - mostly straight line cross hatching through the blocks and fence rails in the border. I did FMQ the setting triangles and the white blocks of the nine patches. Look at the toes of a pair of cowboy boots - the FMQ in the setting triangles is my version of "toe stitching"!

It's wonderful and will be loved by the little cowboy for many, many years.

I am impressed, as always, Doniene. You have an eye for what looks good on the quilt and your curved lines are smooth and flowing. What a great little cowboy quilt. Yee-haw!

Very nice baby quilt... and one that will transition easily to young man-hood too!

The cowboy fabric is very cute... I know this quilt will be appreciated!

Happy Saturday my friend, I hope the book arrived-if not you should have it by Monday. O.k. now about the quilt-it is so perfect for a boy. I'm wondering if you could share the name of the pattern(if you didn't design it yourself)-I'm thinking I'd love to make one for my youngest grandson for Christmas. Your machine quilting is great, as always. Wish we lived closer-you could teach me so much!
Hugs & Love, Noreen
