#003 Cowboy Boots and Hats -Quilt (56"x70") -   This pattern was the first of several to consist of 12" square blocks. The idea was to develop designs of uniform size which could be combined to produce unique sampler quilts reflecting a maker's or recipient's special interests. Make a set of boot sofa pillows for a smaller project or expand the design for a full bed quilt. An insert gives additional directions for 9" and half-size 6" blocks. A time tested pieced design for classic western favorites. YIPPEE! Kick up your heels and hit the trail. It's time to create a Western quilt.

#007 Western Partners - Wall Quilt (36"x36") "Buckaroo Bill" and "Contrary Kate".  This jaunty couple is fun to sew for country line dancers, rodeo competitors, for a western wedding, or as unique Western wall decor. Outfit the cowboy in jeans or chaps, and add the rawhide rope. Either figure can stand alone. For a smaller project such as a Pillow, or for a Sampler Quilt, sew just the top portion for a "Portrait Block". An easy pieced design with fun-to-do embellishments!

$12.00 Plus S/H

Cow Fabric Packs Available.

#012 The Baron of Beef (Dairy,Too) - Large Wall Quilt (45"x45")  These cowhead designs are pieced rather than appliquéd. The brands are applied with fuseable web and machine stitching.  All the common breeds of beef and dairy cows are represented - Hereford, Angus, Shorthorn, Longhorn, Crossbred, Guernsey, Jersey, and Holstein. Make unique Pillows, Banner/Table Runner, Wall Quilts, or add the 12" blocks to a sampler. For a country farm quilt, sew the dairy cows and substitute daisies or sunflowers for the brands.

Use this pattern with our special Western Fabric Packs to focus star centers with western prints #018 Showtime Stars  This pattern was designed to showcase favorite novelty and theme print fabrics in a quick and easy-to-sew quilt.  This is a very versatile design which can be used to make quilts of all sizes from bed to wall quilts.  The quilt layout consists of two alternating 12" blocks with sashing between. Make the blocks scrappy and colorful with the fabrics in these packs, adding others from your own stash, or use a planned color placement.

For a design option, substitute other 12" blocks from the Chickadee Charms pattern series for the star blocks and individualize your quilt even further.  Make this the beginning of a creative challenge with unique and wonderful results.  Quick and easy piecing.  Adaptable to many fabric arrangements.  Optional prairie point edging not shown on illustration
