Quilting Project

Before I mentioned a website called Craft Hope that is hosting a quilt give-away this month. I started working on my quilt and bought enough material to make 2 of the same kind. I will give one away and keep one for my son as a Christmas present.
In the picture above you can see several of the prints. There are 3 horse prints. I sewed the last strip on wrong. The cowboy print in the corner is supposed to be in the other corner so that the horse prints make a diagonal. At least that's what I saw in my mind. I did the second one correctly and am still trying to figure out if I want to "fix" this one before I finish the quilt.
Here is a closeup of one the middle horse fabric. I thought this was very "Texan" and boyish. I love the burgundy and cream and tried to bring that out in some of the other squares.

So next I need to purchase the batting, and cotton flannel material for the back. I hope to be finished by the end of the week.


  1. Looks like you are ambitious! Hope they turn out the way you want them to!

  2. hi Yolanda! Thanks for helping us reach our goal! Each quilt is a unique special gift-your hands will be a blessing to a child!
    Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. I love peeking over your shoulder at your craftiness!

  4. And I love peeking at your garden! :) I have always loved to craft. I'm beginning to embrace me!

  5. Very cool! Are you going to post pictures of the finished quilt?

  6. Cassandra-yes I will post pictures when I am done. I ran into a snag as I learned that I have to quilt BEFORE I bind. So I had to pull out my seam ripper. :)

  7. Oh, no. That stinks. Did you do the binding on the entire quilt before you realized it?

  8. Shereen-yes the whole quilt! Oh well, I guess it was a good lesson in diligince and perserverance! :)
