That expression has long amused me. What does it mean? All hat and no cattle means someone who talks a good line, but doesn't have much in substance to back it up.
And maybe that is what I have been guilty of lately. I sure have a lot of ideas for quilting projects, but haven't really been buckling down and getting anything done. In my defense, I think I am going through a creative phase where I am taking stock of my inventory of fabric and the projects I would like to do. My mind just swims with idea after idea.
Look at that girl in the picture above. She doesn't care a bit that if she drinks that beer her big butt is going to crack that table she is sitting on right in half. She is happy as a lark. Oh well, I guess I am too!
But, like I said, I've been thinking. Look at this year old issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. Is that not a gorgeous quilt? It sure is.
Here is a picture of the entire quilt.
Oh yes. That works. I just made a red and white quilt, so I am not in the mood to do that in the near future, but how about black and white? This is an Alex Anderson collection called Always and Forever for P & B Textiles. There is a red and white color way, a blue and white color way, and the black group you see above. The fabric has been out for quite awhile, but you can still get it. Check out quiltshops.com, and you will find it.
See what I mean? The old brain is always workin'. Just think, if I made this quilt, it would match my kitchen chair cushions, and go splendidly with a red painted wall. If I had one. Which I just might someday.
