Cowboy Quilt Made by a Cowboy

This is David's second quilt!  He is my 9 yo son.  You can find his first quilt here.  He enjoyed making the first quilt so much ( a wall hanging), that he wanted to make a lap quilt.  But when he got that size all sewed up, we had enough fabric left over to make it big enough for his bed.

I think this pattern is easy enough for a small child to make by himself.  David was really working on getting his seams to be 1/4 inch.  I had to trim a few spots, but it went together okay.

For those of you who don't know my son, he is a very adventurous, outdoor kinda kid.  He loves all things farming, ranching, and outdoor.  He is the one who volunteers to mow the grass lately, even when it's super hot outside!

I gave it a quick meander and sewed the binding on for him.  But I am so proud that he did such a great job on his quilt!  He's even going to help me make one for his little brother. (They share a room so his will have horses on it.)


  1. Your cowboy did an amazing job! I love his happy smile even more than the quilt!

  2. Great job David! I really like all the different colors you used in your four patch blocks.

    Looking forward to seeing your next quilt.

  3. I am so impressed with your son's work, nice job!!
