Spent more time stitching than usual on this excruciatingly hot weekend and finished up a Love Quilts square for a wild west-themed quilt. I've had this design in my stash for 20 years. It's from the Stoney Creek booklet, "Best of the West". I once picked it up for a buck on a clearance table at my LNS of the time. The designs in it were not something I was interested in, but they were very well charted and the price was more than right. I've always wanted to stitch the cowboy bear for a little boy, but those guns in his holster stopped me because I know what a sensitive issue that is. For this quilt, it specifically states that guns are OK if not pointed at anyone, so I knew the design's time had finally come.
