Quilty!

14 comments







Lots and lots of pictures for a quilt I am so proud of and so happy with. I made this quilt for my boyfriend of two years. He is part Navajo American Indian and part cowboy at heart, so I made this cowboy/indian quilt. I appliqued the stars (almost 90 total) and it took me nearly six months to complete. He is a good sport and shows it to anyone who comes to visit him. He says he is proud to be dating a creative woman, and I am proud to be dating someone who supports my hobbies and talents.

It was my first quilt - EVER - so it took a lot of coaching from my mom to get it done. It is nearly king size but I was stubborn and wouldn't compromise my "vision" in order to have a managable first project. I learned a lot and though there were difficulties, I would do this again in a second and have all sorts of baby quilts in mind with the same theme. A lot of the fabrics are vintage, antique or reproduction. You'll probably recognize a lot of them from popular recent lines as well. - Natalie

Way to go Natalie. You did a great job on your boyfriends quilt and it is so wonderful that he is so supportive of you. Thanks for sharing the pretty photos. Can't wait to see what you work on next!

Oh my gosh Natalie! Your mother must be bursting with pride. I know I would be! It's really fabulous. The quilting really caught my eye (as it is what I'm currently trying to master). Is that free motion quilting? If so, did you or your mom do it, or did you send it out. In any case; BraVo!!

Wow! Congratulations and a big well done to you for completing such a big project! I'm still working up the courage to start quilting, but if inspiration were all that was required your pictures would have me busy in a heart beat!
