Cowgirl Quilt

Lana pieced this cute quilt for a lucky young lady that loves horses.  I wanted to so some form of wreath in the large, open blocks with the blue background and some form of feather in the large black border. 
There are fire flowers in the the setting triangles by doing a large swirl and then quilting flames around the outside edge.  I used circle templates to make the 2 concentric circles in the open blocks and then did flames to make the wreaths. 
I used my swirl that I came up with as a border design to complement my swirl meander in both the brown border and in the line dancing in the 4 patches.  I really like how it looks in the 4 patches and it really filled up the same nicely. 

The tan border has a one of Sue Patten's border designs in it.  The outer border has a fern feather in it.
