Oh! And Wrangler Man has been begging me to finish his quilt. You think that would be inspirations enough... but nope - I needed more!!
Last night after our Cross Country meet ( our team made State!! yay!!) I pulled it out and got to it!
This is what it looks like when you finish and you throw it over your loved one, and hope your cell phone will make a flash...
I think it looks much better this morning! And the best thing - it is finished ! Before Football season has gotten cold!
And yes - that green thing is a rope. A real cowboy rope. Except that is it clean.
Sometimes a cowboy needs to practice inside.
When I started making this quilt it was just some purple and yellow scraps.
It was awfully flowery at the time. So I went to my scraps and pulled out some less flowery ones.
I added them in and it sort of muted the floral tones.
Then when it came to quilting - I had a brilliant idea. What if I quilted his favorite team into it!
And Voila - The Wyoming Cowboys came to be on a purple and yellow quilt.
I think that earned me at least a bag of Dove Dark Chocolates.... right?
