Yee Haw!

After getting the link for this free pattern from Debi on the Quilting Passion forum, I knew exactly which fabrics I would use to make it. I've been looking for just the right way to use some cowboy fabrics since buying them on the shop hop day of the DFW Gang's get-together in Dallas last fall.

It's an easy pattern, and I want to use it again. After quilting it, I want to donate it in memory of Jan Jackson to the Texas Project Linus chapter in her area. Jan and I were shopping together when I bought two of these fabrics, and I think a little cowboy in Texas would like it, especially since one of the fabrics has the word "Texas" all over it! (That fabric was a gift from our hostess, Debi.)

It also reminds me of all the cowboys I did not see in Texas!! LOL

Beautiful quilt...and btw, seeing cowboys was not on the wanted to see Mustangs, and you saw Mustangs, if I remember correctly. If you wanted to see cowboys...well we needed to go somewhere else, maybe Billy Bob's!

Point taken! I was much more interested in fabric and the mustang sculptures--maybe 35 years ago I would have gone for the cowboys! It was a perfect weekend, and I am still enjoying my memories of all the good times and laughs we all had. You done good, girl!
