The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Cowboy Up!" by Tommy Romano
Do a puzzle of Tommy Romano's quilt, Cowboy Up!
Made using an animal skin print fat quarter bundle he picked up at Houston, Cowboy Up! didn't really come to fruition until Tommy came across the boot pattern featured so prominently a couple of years later. By marrying the two together, and featuring an improvised piano key border made up of the leftover fabric around the edge, Tommy created a quilt that any cowboy or cowgirl would want to giddy up about!
