    This is a quilt that took me far too long to finish. Not because I worked on it so much, but because I went thru a funk and couldn't find time to do anything for myself. When this was finally done, I actually felt like I accomplished something!
    My sis lived in Houston TX when her and hubby met. They loved living there and miss it alot. When he was born he was a little hard for my sis to figure out. One Facebook status she put "Houston! What is the problem!!!!" That is when I decided to make it with space appliques on it. I am so in love with the colors! She chose different quilts she liked and I put them all together. My favorite thing is the circles. I reverse appliqued with my machine. My MIL custom quilted it for me bless her heart! Thanks for looking!!!
