I made up for some of the time lost yesterday. The cowboy is from an old Alice Brooks design, in a book about applique I checked out from the library: Applique Quilt Revival by Nancy Mahoney.
Mahoney made a few changes to the original orientation of the block and produced a really cute quilt with 20 blocks. I just wanted to try the applique so I made one block with scraps and then added borders.
At least this is progress...after taking out all of that stitching yesterday, I managed to get back on track.
