This wall hanging was created to be the Western themed centerpiece in Fun To Sew's sales booth at the 2008 OKC Winter Quilt Show.

Most of my quilts are original designs, but time was limited so we found this great pattern from Bigfork Bay Cotton Company designed by Toni Whitney.

The pattern is designed for raw-edge appliqué using fusible web.

I wanted quilting lines that very precisely followed the outlines of all the appliqué pieces, so all of the quilting was done with straight-stitch and pivoting rather than free-motion. Each piece was quilted with a matching Sulky Blendables thread.
