Back in January, I made some baby quilts with Rodeo Rider fabric by Riley Blake fabrics.
For no real good reason other than I wanted an excuse to play with the rodeo fabrics!
I convinced myself that I could give them as gifts or sell them to some Texan friends.
I really loved the colors, and if anyone knows me well, my favorite thing to do when we lived in Houston was to go to the Rodeo!
I love the gorgeous Shannon Fabrics, Rosette minky backing. It wasn't a perfect match to the front pink, but it was leftover stash and I just love it for baby quilts.
And the paisley binding again. I still have some of this leftover and am tempted to make myself another Rodeo quilt for myself to have up in the studio!!
I gave the Baby Rodeo Star to a friend in June.
And wouldn't you know it? Just as I was going to post this one for sale, I got a request for a baby quilt commission from another friend. I was happy to make her a new one, but she loved the girl version I had already made and asked that I monogram it.
I love how the simple monogram made it shine!

Ironically, Button ended up needing a blanket to take to school for "rest time" this year, so the boy Rodeo Rider quilt found an owner too! He wouldn't take his precious "Buddy" blanket because it had to be left there, so he asked me if I had one or if I could make one. I forgot to take a picture of the embroidered quilt label I made before he took it in. Next time it comes home for a wash, I will do so!!
