today was a good quilting day. i got to work on a cowboy themed quilt my friend Becky pieced.
of course, once i got to quilting i realized that cattle brand symbols would of looked awesome in the setting triangles, but, alas, it was too late.
i used clip art from my computer to 'draft' the motifs in the setting squares. then using a chalk pencil i drew them onto the quilt. (i ONLY use chalk on quilts cause i've never had an issue with removing it) then i just traced the drawings with my machine. i changed thread color for more of a contrast. if i'm going to do something that 'fancy' i want it to show.
my favorite fabric she used was a small scaled peanut. it reminded me of the restaurants you go to that let you throw the shells on the floor. :)
if i can say so, i'm pleased with the finished quilt. i think my favorite is the horse. it came out perfect! i know Becky will love it too!
