My Lil’ Buckaroo Quilt Kits

I’m so excited to finally show you our “My Lil’ Buckaroo” quilt!  I talked about it here when we were at Quilt Market and were wowed by Shannon Fabric’s “House of Shannon”.  A house furnished entirely of items made with Cuddle Fabric.  It was luscious and I had no idea you could do so much with cuddle/minky type fabric.  We also learned some great tips for working with cuddle fabric.  I talked about it here.

Fast forward 3 months and here’s our version of the cowboy quilt made by Amber and quilted by Loretta.

My Lil' Buckaroo Quilt

My Lil’ Buckaroo Quilt

As I said before, part of the reason I was so excited about this collection was that I was in the process of putting together a cowboy room at the cabin for my two little grandsons.  Amber made this quilt and I’ll be making a second one for the twin log beds in the room.  My two little urban cowboys will be snuggly warm under these.  We backed the quilt with a pony print cuddle fabric and Loretta put a light weight cotton batting in it.  It’s soooo soft and snuggly!

The kit includes the fabrics pictured including binding and pattern for $79.00.

The pony print backing in the bottom left corner of the picture is $39.00.

This is not listed on our website.  If you have questions or would like to purchase this kit, email Terri.

This little cowboy is going to enjoy his snuggly quilt.

I feel like I’m leaving somebody out here.  My other little cowboy - even though he doesn’t know he’s my little cowboy yet.  He did have fun rocking on the rocking horse, but I didn’t get a picture of that.  He was a little waterdog this visit.

Monday’s Motivation

kind words echo 8-26-13

Have you experienced the echoes of kind words?  I sure have.  They weren’t anything profound or elaborate, they were just words spoken at the right time that kept coming to mind over and over again.  Words that made me smile.  Words I needed to hear.  Words that made an impact.

We never know what effect a few simple words can have on someone’s day, let alone their life!  Make them positive and uplifting.

side note ~  this just made me smile ~  I think it’s positive?!?!  I’ve been told by my beginning quilting students that they hear my voice when they are at their cutting tables cutting away……”DON’T FORGET TO CLOSE YOUR CUTTER!”

x

So…….I think that’s a good thing but not exactly what Mother Teresa had in mind!  Hopefully I’ve spoken other words that are echoing out there!



Thanks for visiting!

If we could keep this in mind every day ……….. think of the possibilities!

I’ll be striving to make each moment count this week.  Count in a way that impacts others.

Chevron Love baby quilt

Just had to share this adorable baby quilt from the Chevron Love booklet!

Sue B's baby quilt

Sue was finishing this up at retreat this weekend.  It’s for her grandbaby that will be here soon.  The gray pindot is Maywood flannel and the back has Minky on it.  Little Finlay is going to be so snuggly wrapped up in this cutie!

Do you mix textures in your quilts?  This has regular cotton and flannel both on the front.  For snuggle quilts it just adds that little extra “snuggle” to the quilt.  I need to do that more.

Thanks for your inspiration this weekend Sue!  Can’t wait to meet little Finlay.  :-)
