    Well La la Lori has decided to make a few of these Texas quilts to sell to her family and friends...because the first one apparantly went over really well...YAY!

    I love this quilt because of all it represents in my journey as a quilter. I was afraid of my own ideas until Lori freed me the first time around and the end result helped both of us what a true blessing! Our ideas can never be to big right?

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA. I used Hobbs polydown batting.

    Thanks for looking!

    Your quilt is really outstanding and you had a good time. It shows in your work. The figures were so clear. WOW.

    Love the way you quilted the "Texas" aspect in your quilts. And I am a little biased, too, as I was reared in Texas.

    I remember your first one with the longhorn ("its a Texas thing" :lol: )

    I have to say Charismah your quilted pictures are AMAZING! Especially that bull rider. Did you stitch that through golden threads paper or a similar product or mark the quilt? I can see it is way too detailed to have followed a design with a laser light. Lots of starts and stops in that cowboy!

    I love all the motifs among the quilting. They were fun to see. It looks great and I am not and never have been in Texas. So I am not prejudice.

    Though this is not the first quilt you've done for me, it is always so exciting to see your work make my quilt come to life. You are the best!

    What fabulous, artistic quality. not to mention all the love and time involved in it. I also grew up in Texas in the Clear Lake area near Houston. Lived there til my mid-30's and still think of it as home. You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take Texas out of the girl.
