Cowboys & Ponies by Laweigel
I originally made this quilt in 1997 from a book called "Quilts to Make for Kids" by Better Homes & Gardens. I donated the finished, tied quilt to my son's elementary school for a fundraising auction. In 2010, I decided to make another one, put it away incomplete and just recently, came across it and decided to get these cowpokes & ponies done! I also went to Amazon to see if the book was still around and I just purchased it used for $.01 (shipping was $3.99)! I am enjoying appliquéing the figures...next I will embroider the manes, lassos, boots, etc. It says it is a quilt design from the 1930's. 12 cowboys & 20 ponies.
Finally done! I hand quilted stars and hand quilted around each appliqué.
