    Hi
    Do you mean like cowboys and boots, bucking horses or do you mean southwestern style? I am sure I have it all, if you let me know what you need.

    absolutely all of them -- my sister is making a turning twenty quilt out of the most amazing western fabric -- it's a new line (not sure which one) that just came into the quilt shop where she works. She makes em and I quilt em on our long arm.

    You can use pretty much any pattern and just use western themed fabric. I made a cowboy quilt for my little great nephew. Used the Shoo Fly block pattern and 2 different cowbody fabrics.

    Another idea is to applique boots, cowboy hats and the likes.

    Ok hopefully this will work but these are the sites I have in my favorites.

    It looks like they may work but you can email me if you can't get them and I will send them to you directly.

    You all have heard me reference several quilts in my posts... I want to give Ms. Watts a big thumbs up for this book...

    I recommend it thoroughly. In it you will find the Dazzler quilt I am making now as well as the latilla pattern I will be doing sometime this year.

    patterns to quilt already pieced tops seem to be pretty hard to find with a western them. The quilt is pieced with the cutest western fabric, and now my sister wants me to quilt it on our mid arm. And I'm fresh out of ideas. Do you know of any continuous line southwestern quilt patterns?

    Safta, I would recommend an all over meander and throw in a few stars. That seems to most logical approach.

    Check out www.animas.com

    Jackie Robinson has four western patterns available. I have made the Branding Time quilt in queen size. Ths most difficult part was fussy cutting the cowboys. The most fun part was making the boots.
