Cowboy Way

Snow bound.  What a week we have had here in Kansas.  14 1/2" of snow has kept me at home for a couple of days.  What great weather for catching up on some sewing.

 

I'm participating in Project Quilting over at Persimon Dreams.

Cowboy Way Flannel Quilt


Cowboy Way

Project Quilting Season 4, Challenge 4 - Wish Upon A Star.
Made by Carla in Dodge City, Kansas.

Size:  49" x 71"
Flannel Throw

The cowboy fabric for this throw has been in my stash for awhile and this was the perfect chance to put it to use.  My inspiration was the need for a blanket in my "cowboy" guest bedroom. 

Made of flannel, the big star was cut from two layers of brown and and the smaller stars are one layer of black.  I used a flannel sheet for the batting and another flannel sheet for the backing.  The star is "fringed" on the edges rag quilt style as well as the edges of the quilt.  The quilting is lassos and stars.

You can vote for your favorite Wish Upon A Star Quilt here before the end of the day Friday, March 1st.  Voting is for FOUR of your favorites.  Mine is Carlotta Jean. [ In case you want to vote for me :^) ]

I purchased these wonderful pin covers I have seen Eleanor Burns use.  LOVE THEM.  I didn't have sore fingers.....

Cowboy Way at home


February 2013
The snow looked like water outside my sewing room window.  We are so grateful for moisture and may have to get out tomorrow and sled down that hill in the distance.  It's a great sledding hill with adrenalin rushing galore!

What's happening in the world?  I've been at home,

Love the earthy colors. Makes me want to dig into my cowboy stash and get some of my western quilts done. Nice work! Oh, and I love the snow; wish I had a little of that here :)
