I'm so blessed and lucky to have great friends!
Even better... great friends, who will sew for me last minute for quilt market!
My Rodeo Rider fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs released shortly before the Spring International Quilt Market in Minneapolis. I was a little stressed about getting all the sewing done for my booth in time. So I asked a few friends to help.
Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs was one of those friends. She designed two playfully creative cowboy/girl quilts for me. Aren't they fabulous!?!
(Thank you, Shari, I love your creations!)
I love how she combined traditional quilt elements like the friendship stars, and modified 9-patches, with more trendy elements like her silhouetted cowboy-themed appliqué blocks. Adorable, right?

This alone is quite amazing...but what you can't see, is the beautiful custom quilting by Kayli Taylor. If you look closely at the photo of the girl version of the quilt, pay attention to the white blocks behind the appliqué. You'll be able to see hints at some of the intricate details and patterns in this custom quilting job. I love it!
Well if you've fallen in love with these quilts the way I have...and the way that so many others at quilt market did, who asked for the pattern...I've got some great news for you!

These quilt patterns also come with the SVG cutting files, of the appliqué pieces that you will need, so you can cut them in with your digital cutting machine. If you don't have a cutting machine, no worries. The patterns also include printable templates so you can hand-cut the designs.
