Cowboy Quilt for Krue

Here is a quilt I made for my sweet little grandson's 1st birthday a few months ago. His mama gave me the cowboy fabric and I did the rest!! (I sort of made it up as I went along. I fussy cut the blue and white squares and added the black star fabric.)What was kind of unplanned--but I was really happy with the result--the striped fabric on the border and the backing and the red narrow border and binding are FLANNEL--but the rest is cotton. I just really liked the flannel stripes--and when it was all finished--I liked having flannel around the outside--soft to hold onto.

The little horse was a vintage pattern I bought on e-bay from Australia. Took TOO much time to make---but I think he is cute!

OH! This was my first machine quilting--I made a PRACTICE STRIP first to quilt and cut it into 3 bibs when I was done. Not Perfect--But I am content.
