HST Rodeo Rider Baby Quit

I haven't been doing any sewing this past month, but I have had a couple of quilts to bind and I've worked on those a little bit off and on:


This little quilt top came together awfully fast last year. I had 2 charm packs of a Riley Bake line called Rodeo Rider, but I didn't have a clue as to what pattern to use until I ran across a HST layout on Pinterest that originated here

                                                       
Perfect. This is also the photo I showed a friend when she was looking for a pattern. She made it in turquoise and grays and it is beautiful. I used a navy that I had in my stash from Connecting Threads and set to stitching. The Riley Blake charm packs only have 22 squares and once I used the 2 packs I had, I picked up a third in order to make it a little larger. This one is going to our girl's best friend from childhood. She is a barrel racer and they are expecting their first baby, a girl.


Jackie quilted this wonderful paisley across it to echo the paisley found in some of the prints and I love the way it shows up on the pink polka dotted fabric I used for a backing:


This measures 40" x 48" and I'm just waiting for the arrival of the sweet child to add the label and send it on it's way to Texas.


I really like this layout for HSTs and I think I'll be making it again...soon. I'm trying to get ahead by stashing a couple of baby quilts, but I'm giving them away as fast as I can make them. :)

I like that layout, too. I agree that it's hard to keep a stock of baby quilts. The paisley quilting is perfect for this design and fabric.

That does look good!
I know what you mean--by the time I get an "extra" quilt finished, it isn't "extra" anymore! : )

That is very cute. I like that you used blue even though it's for a girl.

I made that pattern in purples for my granddaughter! It's a wonderful quilt. I got my idea from another quilter! Love those fabrics. I remember that line. Riley Blake does some adorable prints. I have a cowboy line tucked away in storage now. Getting our rental emptied and hoping to get on the road by May 1st! I found out I have way more fabric than I will ever use!! But it's all I own and I hope the kids can make a little money on it when I'm gone. Take care and pray your hubby is doing better.

So fun! I especially like the dot fabric for a backing. I wouldn't have thought of that.
