Finish It Up Friday ~ the Cowboy Quilt

My first quilt quilted on the long arm since my surgery. Not gonna lie, loading it wasn’t the easiest. But I got it done.

I really loved this cowboy print, and the fact that I had so many bits in my stash that coordinated so well!

Here is the back.

I kept the quilting simple

and used a poly batt.

This is how I did it. I free handed a large meander.

And then I went back over it weaving and crossing back and forth. I think it looks a bit like twisted ribbons.

Or a cowboy’s rope.

I had originally cut this binding for a different quilt and ended up not using it. That was handy!

This quilt finished at 42 by 52 inches. I will probably donate it. It really is out of my bailiwick, but it’s good to work that way sometimes.

Have a great day!

    What a sweet quilt! The quilting definitely has a cowboy rope vibe to me, with lots of motion. We know those cowboys don’t do much sitting around, and neither do you! Congrats on getting back in the “longarm saddle” after your surgery.
