cowboy quilt for my lil cowpoke





i made this cowboy quilt for my littlest guys birthday. one side is mostly micheal miller's lil cowpoke fabric with a strip of yellow and white polka dots. the other side is cream material with a strip of pieced lil' cowpoke and polka dot material. the top was quilted with brown thread every inch. the bottom was quilted in yellow thread by tracing various sizes of bowls onto the fabric. the binding was just leftover from another project but i thought i matched nicely. i think it needs an applique or embroidery of some sort. i love the look of this little blanket/quilt. one thing that i did this time was to wait to wash the fabric until the quilt was complete. i think it gave it a yummy old fashioned look. this was my first time doing the hand sewn binding and it is a little rough, i think i might have to redo it but i'll see how it looks after i wash it again. hope you like it baby boy!
