My heroes have always been cowboys

Found in my stash -- an old log cabin cutter quilt! My friend Gail and I found the cutter quilt well over a year ago and decided to split the quilt between us. She wants to use it to cover small stools and I wanted it for altered art. Well, instead I now find that they are perfect for small collages. I did this one yesterday. Got to use up old junk (rusty belt buckle, old nail and a button) plus more recent stuff (a leather skirt found in a thrift shop). Nothing like a good looking cowboy! And nothing better than watching one walk away in great fitting Levi's!! Right, Kim??

M, a cutter quilt is a damaged quilt. This particular quilt was worn, torn in spots and had a large (unknown) stain on it. Not really worth trying to clean and restore. Pieces of cutter quilts can be used to make pillows, chair seat covers, teddy bears, doll clothes, etc. Better that than be thrown away.

Wow, I didn't read that last sentence. There is nothing better than that, except I prefer Wranglers!
