This beauty was pieced by one of my awesome customers : Mary O'Driscoll. She does fabulous applique and has a knack for finding the perfect fabric for the pieces.
I have quilted several of this Baltimore Album type quilt, but this was a challenge. It is a formal style and setting, but with a Cowboy theme. I felt it needed quilting to bridge the gap between formal/casual. So I chose a feather design for the border that had a bit more whimsy and added a rope border to the center design to set it off . The center also has a McTavishing type of quilting to make the beautiful boot and bouquet pop!

Lots of free hand design work!
Pebbling, I got a workout!
