A local ranchers wife contacted me for a commissioned Double Wedding Ring quilt.
She wanted to give it as a gift to some friends of hers.
These friends make cowboy hats for a living.
(There's probably a fancy term for "cowboy hat making" but I don't know it!)
She wanted some cowboy hat prints along with other
Because I don't have time to piece quilts for others, I contacted my friend, Andrea, from Pennsylvania who pieces quilt tops for others.
You can read about her process on this quilt here.
I'm so glad she's my friend - for so many reasons!
She always does such beautiful work - she's my gal!
She suggested the Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern,
Here is the result.
Andrea pieced the top, sent it to me, then I added this blue border.
The customer wanted a "puffy" quilt
so I used
a 9 oz. polyester batting.
I quilted a simple stipple in the center and
straight lined the border.
The intersections got a curved outline.
Cowboy hats for the backing - perfect!
I used a solid black for the binding.
She loved it!
Makes me want to get cutting/piecing on my own!
I love this pattern...
