Some of you may remember my old friend, The Amish Cowgirl Well, I said goodbye to her Saturday. It’s hard to say goodbye when you’ve been friends for so long.   She was my first vintage quilt. I sold her to someone who really wanted and appreciated her and will cherish her in her home. […]

  A short post today because I am so excited. I want everyone to know that Cowgirl-Red is on the road to Wichita. Aspen Boutique. Douglas & Oliver. Wichita 4 Corners Fall Festival   10-6  Taking a few of the “girls” with us. Come see us!! Love,  Terah    aka  Cowgirl-Red

 I call this one “The Story of My Life” quilt. The pattern is an old one called “Trip Around the World”. I bought it at an antique store in Wichita the same day I saw the Surfer Jesus . “Trip Around the World”  is apropos for my life.   Because ….. I’ve been everywhere, man.    […]

 My name is Terah and I have serious addiction …. to vintage quilts. Not all vintage quilts…..  Just the ones that are unfinished. Unusual. That speak to me. That need some TLC. That want to be brought back out into the light. From wherever they were hiding. To fulfill the purpose “She” intended.   A […]

This was originally posted in 2011.  Under the title “Vintage Quilt Blocks.”  I promised you another post when I finished the backing and binding so here it is. (3 years later…..  don’t judge, …. I’ve been busy) I know I’ve said this before. But this may very well be my favorite project to date. In […]

This blog post was originally published in 2012. Which was before the  “Great Escape”  of 2013.  I finished the quilt. I’ve got my mojo back! Quilting for Karma   …..  2014 I had a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box.  I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only […]

 Our Lady of Guadalupe. My process for my art is this ……. I don’t really have one. I find unusual, quirky fabrics that appeal to me. Then I lay them out in my studio and look at them for awhile. (a year) Then one day they speak to me. They say something like this …… […]

I have a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box. Last year I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only about 1/10th of what’s in there. I would never tackle a project like these blocks even with modern fabrics.  It’s much too tedious for me. But there […]

   I posted about this quilt a few months ago.  At the time I thought it was the ugliest quilt ever made. As it turns out, it is the most favorite one I’ve ever made. I went on an Artist’s Retreat to Santa Fe in November, having just finished the top. I showed the blog […]

I was going to call this post “The Ugliest Quilt Ever”. But that’s really not fair, nor is it true.  These vintage quilt blocks came in a boot box full of treasures I bought from a custom quilt shop.I laid them out in my studio and stared at them for  weeks.  I think these fabrics […]
