Oh I only just missed the deadline by one day, so it doesn’t really count! Here is the quilt block I have made as part of the Stash Bee for Jane, who was Queen Bee for March. She chose a free pattern called Cow Hands designed by Pam Rocco. There are two blocks to choose from, either the Cowboy or the cow. I think most people chose the cowboy so Jane will be left making some cows! This wasn’t the easiest quilt block, mostly just cutting out patterns is somewhat tedious for me, I’m not very good at it so it takes me a long time and I forgot to fold the cream fabric before I pinned all the squares on so I had to cut that twice! Piecing it was far more enjoyable and straightforward than the cutting! I haven’t pieced anything for a while so it was nice to do some. Lately I have been quilting and binding and sewing, but I love piecing. I can sit and do that for hours.
I hope Jane doesn’t mind the pink hat and boots, looking at everyone else’s cowboys I see that the fashion among cowboys is black or brown. My guy is from out of town maybe. I thought they looked nice. If he doesn’t fit in with the other cowboys perhaps Jane could use him for a matching pillow or something. That’s right Jane, kick him out, make him an outcast! You cold heartless woman.
N.B. Jane is not at all a cold heartless woman, quite the opposite. I got carried away. Sorry Jane.
