Some of the pieces she gave me were cowgirl/cowboy themed. For a while there she was all about the country western fabrics! But she said she'd never get to it, so away it went.
So I thought for Christmas it might be kind of neat to give her something made from her stash using one of her books and in a pattern she probably would have done. So that's what I did. Everything except the silver came from pieces of her stash that she'd given me.
This is the pattern I chose...I forgot which book it is from, but it's from an older one.
I thought Delectable Mountains would make a great western themed quilt. It's a great quilt anyway!
It became quickly obvious that I needed to do a little tweaking of the pattern, because there were unnecessary Y Seams galore...why...why...WHY. I mean sure, I did trrrrrryyyyy the Y Seams.
So I tweaked it to be put togethr on point not all Y seamy. It went together MUCH smoother and a lot less glossed over swearing out of me.
I quilted it all up on my trusty little Janome...
And, she loved it :-)
