    These are pictures of quilts I made for a grandchildren/office room. I want to make a larger quilt with the boot pattern for a wedding gift, but living in the East, there are no local shops that carry much western fabric. I would llike to find a shop that not only has lots of western fabric but willing also cut fat quarters or 1/4 yard lengths suitable for the boots. The fabric does not need to be limited to specific colors like the one I made. We are all spoilled with our local quilt shop because they will cut fat quarters from any bolt in the store. Charm squares are too small but could possibly use 10" squares.

    We have a cowboy/western collection of fabrics; maybe you will find something here that would work?

    No direct suggestions about the fabric, other than the classic, ask Mr. Google.

    However ... would like to know about the cowboy boot pattern?
    Care to share the pattern??
    and/or where to find it?

    Please? and Thanks!

    The pattern is from the Sept/Oct issue of Fons and Porter's For the Love of Quilting. The pattern has 16 boots and finishes 38 1/2 by 40 1/2. I only have a copy of the pattern from a friend's magazine, but will be glad to copy and sent it to anyone who wants it.

    Try ET quilts in Buffalo, Wyoming. They are one of the shops on the shophop and have tons of western types of fabric and are an online shop.
