Mason's Cowboy Quilt

My friend Leslie had a little boy, Mason, on Dec.27. As soon as I found out she was pregnant, I started on this quilt. I asked what her dream nursery was and she said cowboy/cowgirl. Then when she found out she was having a boy I was able to get it all pulled together. It's been done for quite a while but I didn't want to share it just in case she wandered here and saw it before she got it. I'm so excited to FINALLY get to share this quilt I made for him. Here's Mason's "cowboy quilt". All the squares were hand done by me. The shapes were cut on my (and a friends) cricut to make a template and then I hand cut everything after ironing steam a seam to the back. All the sewing was done with my Emerald 118 machine.

Mason's Cowboy Quilt

The back is done with the boot flannel that is in the coyote square. I tied it at the corners with brown pearlized thread. I hope she loves it as much as I do. I had a GREAT time making this quilt!
