My Texas Quilt is a Star

Spring is definitely in the air...
 
Only one more day of seeding left
 
AND
 
the plum trees are just starting to bloom!!
 
With the rain on Sunday, I was able to get back to my Texas Star quilt.

 
Seems like a long time since I picked out the charm squares...

 
Went into flying geese mode...
 


Rode the pineapple express train...
 
 

 
and sent it off to Terry Whitman to get it quilted.
 
Kind of ironic that she gave it back to me just before she headed down to Texas for a week!!


 
I asked for some linear design as it is a lot of triangles.
 
I think she did an amazing job with all the echoing!!


 
Another spectacular job by my favorite longarmer!!

 
I am in love with Suzie's magic binding technique!!
It makes a faux flange and is a fast and easy way to machine bind your quilt.

 
I used paisley wideback for this quilt.

 
And I even got my label on!!
 

 
Sometimes miracles do happen!!!
 
Christa

  4. Perfection! (It's hard to see because it's so small but I like yours better than the one on the pattern). We are going to have a great quilt show with all the beautiful things everyone has been making.

    2. I'm going to make contact with the bus company tomorrow and, then if a bus is possible, I'll contact Justin to get ideas about lunch prices.
