YeeeeHaw! Wild West Quilt!

I finally finished up the Wild West quilt! It is a wedding gift for a cousin that was married recently. I had to finish binding it before I could officially gift it to the happy couple and I found time yesterday to finish the binding. I posted WIP's of it here, but it is now done!
Home On The Range
I had a blast choosing western fabrics for this quilt. The pattern is from an 09 issue of a quilting mag. The pattern was called "Home on the Range". I can't remember what mag it was from!
I found the Alexander Henry western fabric and based the other fabrics around it. It made wonderful focal squares. The green boarder is a western toile fabric. This was also my first quilt put together on point! Whoa what a process!
My wonderful local long arm quilter quilted it up in horse shoes, hats, and boots!
Quilting Close Up
So even though I didn't post any WIP's yesterday I was still working!

so "blast" is what we are calling the process of choosing those fabrics? I seem to recall some swearing and fist shaking when the site lost your saved fabrics :P
It turned out beautifully! Your quilter did a wicked job with the shapes, and you did an awesome job with the pattern.

LMAO Heidi! OK maybe it wasn't as much fun as I made it sound, but it sure turned out nice and I couldn't have picked them without you!
