Rained In...Quilting Time!

We don't ever get enough snow around here to be "snowed in" but we do get plenty of rain and this last Thursday through Sunday it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained. No one wanted to spend much time outside. So on Saturday, I sewed. All day. And it paid off.
I got a quilt top done for a special friend who just had a baby boy a few months ago. This is a very special baby that she has waited on for over 10 years. God is so faithful and good!
I made the quilt large enough so that she could use it on his toddler bed (if she chooses to.) I know he's got a while before he's in a toddler bed (he's only 3 months old now) but she has a lot of baby blankets and she has gone hard core with his cowboy theme, so I thought she may like this for the future.

I used the same line of fabric, Happy Trails from Benartex, that I used in making Mason's big boy quilt. The solid brown is a Bella Solid from Moda. 
I had a few leftover cut blocks from the quilt so I put this pillow face together. I was thinking of trying to find a pillow form for it but I think I'll just stuff it instead.

I've also got some fabric left over to make a matching pillow case too.
When everything is sewn and quilted, I'll share the finished pieces.
Have a great week!
