Yee Ha! Here she is – Rodeo girl gone wild!
This was one of those quilts which came together in a flash. I pulled out my stack of cowboy (and cowgirl) fabrics, and this rodeo girl jumped up and practically shot me in the foot with her revolver.
There were a few images in the fabric that I wanted to alter, like a horses rear end on the arm of the chair and a head at the bottom of the seat back. It was easy to fussy cut images from the fabric out and glue them in place over the top of the parts I wanted to hide. If you click on the pictures, you can see them close up and read my notes.
I am really excited by creating borders that are “carved” out of the fabric. This cactus fabric just begged to be used in a carved border. See?
Once the chair was made and the borders were coming along, I spied the flower fabric in my pile, and the rest is (Wild West) history! I love how the cowboys peek out from behind the flowers! So playful and fun!
I quilted barbed wire in the borders. Yummy!
I think this is my second-favorite chair ever!
P.S. Yes, for those of you paying attention, my boyfriend Alex made most of this fabric – I love him!
