I’ve been working on this foooorrreeeeevvveeerrrrr . . .
About a year and a half ago (maybe 2 years?) I designed a cowboy quilt for our nephew, Connor. I hadn’t planned on making it into a pattern, but when people started seeing it, they started asking . . . Where did you get that pattern? or . . . When are you going to have that pattern ready?
So I took it as a sign that I did indeed need to make it into a pattern, but I couldn’t make it just for little cowboys and leave out all the little cowgirls that might also be out there, so I had to make another one for them.
So that’s why I’m just now finishing it after all this time. It was like the never-ending-sample-making-pattern-writing session!
I used Riley Blake‘s “Wanna Be A Cowboy” line by Samantha Walker for the boy and girl versions. They’ve got a “Wanna Be A Cowboy 2″ line out now that has some flannels that these would be great in! Oh, no . . . I’m feeling the urge to make yet another one! Someone save me from myself . . .
I had the pattern all written, and finished, but then had to come up with a cover. Having already given away the boy version of the quilt, I didn’t have very good pictures of it, so I decided to feature the girl version. Also, no pictures yet, and because I’m a horrible photographer, I was procrastinating on that part.
But I finally got a passable shot, so I’ve got the pattern completely ready to go and listed in my store. And you know what that means, don’t you?
YES! A Give-Away!
I’m giving away 2 copies of this, my newest pattern, to two lucky folks who leave a comment on this post. That’s it — just leave a comment and you’re entered. I’ll draw for two winners on Friday, August 26th.
