    Ragtime Cowboy Connor

    I just finished this rag quilt for my DGS to use on his new twin-size loft bed in his cowboy bedroom. The top is regular cotton quilting material, the backing is muslin, and the "batting" is flannel. I designed the layout around the large "picture" squares and included some of the material I made his curtains out of. He'll turn 6 in a couple weeks, so it's an early birthday present. The second picture shows how the borders "fence in" the quilt.

    How nice. I'll bet he'll love it! Six is an important age so I'm glad he's getting a special quilt.

    That's so cute! I like how the frayed edges frame each square. Really makes the design pop.

    Cute and comfy looking.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I love this quilt! I'm curious what the backing looks like? Did you find most of this fabric in a collection? I'm thinking of doing something similar for my nephew.

    Thanks for all the great compliments, everyone! Horsefeathers - I will try to post a pic of the backing tomorrow...there does not seem to be a way to post a pic unless you start a new thread, so I will have to do that. You're right that most of the fabric is from a collection. I'm not sure which one, but I should have that figured out by tomorrow, too. I bought that material about 3 years ago, though, so it probably isn't available now, but you never know. Keep an eye out under "Pictures" for the update!

    What a cute quilt. I really like the pattern.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
