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