Don't Fence Me In ..... and!! Finished (or not) Friday!

 Happy Friday!!

I was playing in my Fabrics and I decided to start a new quilt. I posted about it, along with the photos of the fabrics... and then... I went to work. I didn't realize - I never posted an in between photo.... but guess what?  it IS FINISHED!!

So!! I originally designed this Quilt pattern in 2014 as a block to stitch with my quilting students ( I taught 5th graders and high schoolers to quilt.... making Quilts of Valor)  And I loved it in Patriotics!!! I was updating my Etsy store and thought - oh heck - wouldn't that same pattern be cool in  these cowboys fabrics and so...

what is a quilter to do - but MAKE it!!.... 



Isn't that just Fun with Cowboys prints?


And see.... no Fences.... as in *Don't Fence Me In * ( I am sooo original right?)

                                                          It never fails - when I have
someone to help me take photos - the wind blows, when I don't have someone , it is not windy... I feel conspired against - so here is an out take...  My son is the best!

Also - It was sunny but the wind was cold... how does that work? Someday I should study Meterology... Sigh

Anyways! I have re-written and updated the pattern so that you too can make a quilt like this ... It is listed in my Etsy store for you to enjoy! Alycia's Quiltygirl Store

and now!! It is your turn to show off your finishes!!

When you showed your fabrics I went to your patterns to try to guess which pattern you would use. That was NOT my guess but looks like you made a wise choice. And thanks, now, for the earworm..."Don't fence me in"..."give me land, lots of land under starry skies above"...

I just love your quilts photographed outside. That blue sky makes the quilt sing. I have just about given up photographing outside- shadows, wind, etc.

Beautiful quilt finish Alycia! I love the colors and that’s a perfect name for it.

Snowcatcher said...

Yeah, that wind... We're supposed to have fun with it again today... But beautiful interpretation of a classic. Nice colors!

Great, now I'll have that song in my head all day! Wonderful finish. It may be windy, but doesn't it feel great outside? Have a lovely weekend!

It's wonderful! I am sure it would work in any colorful combo.
