Free Pattern – BLAZING BANDANAS by Agnete Kay


One day while attending the Calgary Stampede, it occurred to Agnete Kay that the colorful bandanas typically worn by cowboys and cowgirls (and farmers, of course) have printed designs which could be useful in quiltmaking. The designs are usually symmetrical, and bandanas are available in a variety of patterns including intricate, swirling floral and paisley motifs.

The blocks in BLAZING BANDANAS are easy to make, yet each is different and never boring. Of course, you may use the color of your choice for the main fabric!

Why would any humane, sencient person existing in 2012 ever attend the stampede where horses are driven off a cliff and many other hooved lives suffer and are tortured. It is archaic and repulsive to any thinking human!!!


Carol, I have never heard of horses being driven off a cliff in connection with the Calgary Stampede. Also the word is “sentient” and this sentient being enjoys rodeos, also. Every human rodeo athlete I have ever known loves their animals as if they are equals. I think Agnete’s quilt pattern is beautiful and I’m downloading it right now.


Carol, I have to agree with Cathy. I have NEVER HEARD of any function which drives any animals off of cliffs. This may have happened back when the Indians had to hunt hunt but they used every bit of the animal to survive. Where did you get the idea this happens anywhere in this day and time?


As a true animal lover, I am appalled at your uninformed post that is really a dumb soapbox. This is a quilting website for heaven’s sake.


Great idea to use bandanas for quilting. Have seen several clever quilts using them — especially for children.

P.S. The Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
