    Cowboy Baby Quilt

    My cousin is married to a bareback rodeo rider. They just had their first son and I had the joy of making their new baby a quilt. I steered clear of the normal baby boy tones and incorporated a horse applique. I was a bit nervous about that because I wanted to use the minke from the back of the quilt in the applique to make it fuzzy and soft. Not only did it work better than I imagined, but I also used the minke to applique his name, Cayuse. His mama and daddy loved it, non-traditional colors and all.

    Such a unique quilt for a little cowboy. Both precious.
    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    I looked it up in the 60 pound dictionary. It's a tribe in Washington State, now gathered somewhere (eyes are bad) in Oregon, or an Indian pony. We always used it to mean a wild horse and we put an adjective in front of it: nasty cayuse, unbreakable cayuse, etc. Worst one we ever had was named Hemi. That's short for hemmrrohoids. He'd unload you on any pile of nail filled lumber he could find.

    I hope that little boy grows up healthy.

    That's funny! I had to read up on it too. The dad/bareback bronco rider preferred to think of the cayuse as a lively spirited Indian pony. I've also heard that rodeo riders tend to name their children with unusual names. Well, here we go!

    Darling quilt and beautiful GS. I like his name. While it's unusual, at least it's spelled normally. :-)

    How unique. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I like your quilt very much and the little 'cowpoke' looks so comfortable on it. I especially appreciate your comments about using the minky to make your appliques. That sounds like a fun way to go for this type of embellishment.
