The Day After

We survived Thanksgiving!

The first quilt I made for my son is this bowtie quilt. I remember curling up under a similar quilt with my grandmother so many years ago.

I drafted the pattern myself (in those days...mid 1980s...we did not have access to the wealth of patterns and information we can now find on the internet).

He requested a quilt with horses. I found an old pattern for the cowboy on the bronc. I drew the cowboy boot applique. My artistic abilities are slim so I was extremely proud that they looked like boots!
