The Little Cowboy

I finished this little art quilt today. It is for my nephew, Jamie, for his birthday. That's him in the photo when he was four years old - what a cutie. It is 12.5" x 12.5" and the background is a vintage handkerchief depicting cattle roping and branding - a real cowboy thing. His picture is printed on white cotton and the piece is embellished with a section of a leather belt that I 'branded" with a wood burning tool and attached with metal jean button fasteners, a Levis jean tag, a deputy sheriff badge and three star buttons. The backing is blue and white ticking and there is a layer of batting in the middle.
