Little Cowboy Quilt

fullsizeoutput_2d47Happy Independence Day in the USA! I’m celebrating our western themed annual local Frontier Days in my hometown with this Little Cowboy quilt. It’s made using a panel of batik like images related to the Old West.

IMG_4533Each little motif was carefully cut and then sashed with coordinating fabric.

fullsizeoutput_2d43To make the quilt a suitable size, a pieced block was set in each corner.

IMG_4543I used my Elna 680 to free-motion quilt with stitch-in -the-ditch and loops around the the boarder.

fullsizeoutput_2d45I applied my go-to binding method (two strips sewn together, one is the flange at 1 1/4 in. and the outer binding is 2 1/2 in.) to finish the outside edge. I love this type of binding because you can sew it on with the machine and it looks great!

IMG_4532This little quilt was one of four of my pieces that were recently displayed in our local art gallery and also will be joining the home arts display at the Redwood Empire Fair next month.
