First, I'll wish you a happy Independence Day, hoping that freedom becomes more familiar and restriction/oppression (I live in CA) less. (Ever see Monty Python..."Help! Help! I'm being oppressed!" It's a favorite quote around here.)
I made this little quilt in 1993. I believe the cowboy pattern came from Quiltmaker or Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, either in late '92 or early '93. I finished it for my #2 son's 6th birthday. The older kids KNEW it was him. That's how he dressed. Every day.

And an entire box of metallic threads. oh my! I may have gotten carried away!
Happy Birthday, America!
