Johnny and Buck Quilt for Ethan


Fresh out of the dryer, and boy, did this one CRINKLE! I love it...super soft cotton, with a vintage crinkly feel...ahhh. Perfect for cutie-pie Ethan, who will turn a year old this October. I posted earlier that his mommy is my friend, Mandy, who designed my blog and etsy logos. She decorated Ethan's room in khaki, blue, and red cowboy theme. He even has his own holster and pop gun hanging on a peg on the wall...waiting till he's old enough to terrorize his sister, Belle! LOVE it!






At the last minute, I thought it would be cute to hide his name in the stippling

Enjoy your new cuddle quilt, sweet little man, Ethan!

sew awesome!

Ariel said...

thanks, gals! My only thought on the extra crinkling is that I didn't pre-wash my fabrics beforehand...it obviously shrinks the quilt an inch or two, but gives it a really neat effect!

When you're ready, I'm giving you a train ticket up to Canada so you can teach me how to stipple.

How funny. I made a Johnny and Buck quilt a few years ago and used the exact same pattern. It' such a cute fabric! I love those cowboys and indians.

I know this is a few years but I adore this quilt! I love making things for babies. I just recently swapped for some left over pieces from this line but I didn't see the cowboy on the horse print. Love it, so fresh and cozy!!
