Cowpoke Quilt

I realized the other day that I haven’t taken pictures of this little quilt and posted them here on my blog.100_3343

Quite sometime ago Missouri Star Quilt Co. had these charm packs as their daily deal. So I bought one and then had to add in some yardage to make a baby quilt – aren’t they smart ! I kept it simple and just made some hour glass blocks to alternate with the 5″ squares so that I could show off these cute little prints. The quilt measures approximately 38″ x 46″.

Here is a shot of the back. Adding in the left over blocks helped use them up and widen the backing just right.

Last weekend we were combining wheat across from our neighbours hay field and I kept thinking what a great photo shoot location this would be for my cowpoke quilt. Putting the plan into action proved a lot easier said than done. I had to settle for my old stand by location of our old granaries.

Thanks for dropping by. Enjoy your weekend !

I’ll be linking up with CrazyMomQuilts for Finish it Up Friday.

    Ahh, love the looks of your old granary and the hay fields. My family out west in Alberta will be busying haying and combining now too. I love your sweet quilt too; it would make a great wheelchair quilt for a senior, something my guild is doing for our Christmas charity project.

      Thanks Sandra, your guild project sounds like something that would really make the recipient feel special. I think some of the farmers in Alberta have had a rough year weather-wise so I’m glad to hear your family is busy harvesting !

    This is a really sweet quilt. There’s a lot to be said for keeping to a simple patchwork design when you’ve got special feature fabrics. I’ve been collecting fabrics to make into an i-spy quilt – one day… Glad you have been able to get on with the harvest ☺

      Thanks Allison – I look forward to seeing your I-spy quilt. I have one planned too… You’ll probably get yours done first though ! The weather looks good for the next several days so we will be going flat-out !

    Colleen, saw your question on Google+ from Oct 2014 when I tried to find you just now to answer you by email. WordPress and Blogger don’t “speak” to each other, lol, but seriously, so I have no email address for you to respond personally. Did you try the link I have at the bottom of my blog where you comment? It’s really helped a lot of people.

    You can always type out your email in the comment box too like this: ephdra(at)me(dot)com to avoid spam. You could also have a “Contact Me” box on your blog sidebar which takes a person to your email address when they click it. Just a few thoughts! Hope some of it helps!
