This is my entry into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. As always my last finished quilt is my favorite thus I present Eric’s Boots, my current favorite.
The boots were a BOM from Moose on the Porch in 2010, I think. I had a great time picking out the fabrics for each of the boots, making them my own.
border fabric has been in my stash for a few years. I LOVE it but it hasn’t wanted to play nice with other fabrics ……. until now.
Three times I put the blocks on the wall and three times I put them back in the BOM “waiting” box.
And then along came these machine embroidery designs, from Artistic Thread Works, and they were perfect. I had just had my embroidery machine serviced so I quickly sewed them up and this quilt was finally born.
I had the top completed in time for DH’s birthday. He is a old timey B-Western fan and memorabilia collector and this quilt will fit in nicely in our museum like great room.
This the backing for Eric’s Boots. I found it in my stash: I think I had thought to make curtains but that never happened.
I am very excited about this quilt. I tend to not be able to make a quilt using the designer’s layout and Eric’s Boots is no exception.
Thanks for visiting, Gari
