Cowboys and Cherries Oh my!

 Here's the first cowboy quilt top. I'm waiting to get the second one done before adding borders. Barb in MI cowboy fabric came today and my friend Jill sent some as well. Thanks ladies!!
 When Gay at Sentimental Stitches made copies of her antique quilt she also copied quilting motifs  and added them to the patterns. I've made cardboard templates for one of the blocks and hand quilting has started!!
 2 flowers done!
I know I have Danish readers. Here is my sons host brother Jon on duty protecting the Queen of Denmark!!

  1. You sure whipped that Cowboy quilt up quickly, Lori!
    Your quilting looks wonderful. Very nice little stitches.
    Did I miss something--you have a son in Denmark?

  2. I got my magazine today, yours is my favorite.
    I see how you hooped your quilt to quilt it, is it basted first or spray basted? I have one ready to quilt, but it is large and I hate the idea of pinning, so need to get it ready to quilt.

  5. You sure got your cowboy quilt done fast. It's really cute. I also love the applique quilt. How large is that one?
    I got my Primitive Quilts magazine today and loved the cheddar cheese and crackers quilt. I always like to try and guess the designer before I look to see if I guessed right. I was so surprised to see it was you! How wonderful! I thought "I know who she is". I can't wait to make it. There are so many wonderful quilts in this issue. It makes my mouth water!!

    Also loving the hand quilting, those are very tiny stitches to me.

  8. I used to have some of that barb wire looking fabric. Your choice of pattern works well to feature those different cowboy prints and pull them all together.

  9. Yippie! That quilt look fantastic. Great pattern to show off the prints. Perfect, Lori. Really well done. I am, of course, amazed with the work you're doing on the repro quilt and even more so because it looks like you're having a lot of fun with it. Makes me smile.

  11. Wonderful job on both. With all the gadgets and gizmos out there, we have to remember that cardboard still works! And hopefully there will always be cereal boxes in our house to get the cardboard from!

  13. You have been busy. Lots of cute cowboy fabric and I like the pattern you are using.

    The BTCT quilt is going to look really good (already does!) when you are finished - you have been taking such pains with it.

    The tie with the young man from Denmark is interesting.

    Nice post - Thanks for sharing!

  16. Lovely, all! At first i thought your son's friend was a little wooden toy! I looked back to him several times & half way expected him to begin dancing as in the old movie, Babes in Toyland. Thanks for sharing. Becky G in NC
