Thread: Cowboy Theme Baby Quilt

    I made this quilt for my sister and her son last year when he was born. I used colors that went with her theme. On the back I used a flannel horse pattern. I came up with the idea myself and improved it as I went on. The letters are his initials (Graham Scott Nelson). It was a lot of fun and it didn't take too much time. Well I worked on it every evening after work for a few weeks. She loves it and has hung it in her babies room and is thinking of starting to use it.

    I am currently starting to work on a baby quilt for my soon to be born baby (Oct 2009). We do not know if it is a boy or a girl yet because it doesn't want to show us... 2 Ultrasounds and still no answer to the sex... Oh well, so I am going to do the quilt with Beatrix Potter fabric. I am very excited to get started, but I haven't decided on a pattern yet. Any suggestions would be great!!!

    Thanks,

    Sam

    That is a dandy quilt, with a lot of work done.
    Good job!
    Can NEVER go wrong with cowboys .
    Right now, my favorite quilt is the disappearing nine patch, but there are so many to choose from ... just browse the site and you will see something that you won't be able to resist the making of.
    Congratulations on your pending blessing.

    Good job. He will have fun getting acquainted with the quilt, loving and hugging on it.

    Beatrix Potter is also one of my favorite fabrics. Are you using panels and adding to them, or just using different prints?

    Beautiful quilt - ideal for a little boy! I too have some Beatrix potter fabric I have been "collecting", and I too need some ideas for a baby quilt. I'm waiting with bated breath to see what these talented quilters come up with!!
