Design Wall Monday 2/18/13

A bunch of miscellaneous projects....  that's what's on my wall!

Yes, I'm still working on my selvage quilt, but I got distracted.  I've been wanting to make a cowboy boot quilt for a very long time. 

When I first started quilting in the 90's and taking classes at The Quilt Barn in Puyalup they were offering a class to make cowboy blocks.  I had signed up for it....  but life happened and I could go.

Later I found the pattern in a magazine....  and it renewed my interest in this block.  I know I saved it in my inspiration binder, but who knows were that binder is?  Not me!

Then I saw some blocks that Sue Hecker had on her design wall a couple years ago....  Again my interest was renewed!

So the other day while looking for directions for piped binding in stack of my files guess what I found?  Yep, my saved copy of the magazine article....  I couldn't resist but to start making blocks right away!!!

I love these....  They make me giggle!!!


My plan is to off set them with applique blocks of brands.  You know like 'Lazy S Ranch'.  I've been serging the meaning of brands and will probably come up with a few of my own...  

So if your so inclined... you can go on over to Judy's and see what others have on their wall.


  1. The boot blocks are really pretty. You have a great imagination in the fabrics you chose.

    1. Thank you Stella! I'm having a lot fun picking out the fabric... trying to find prints that really look like boots.

  2. I LOVE your boots! It will be fun to see the quilt progress.

    1. Thank you Sue! You inspired me to start this project!! :-)
