    I put together this twin quilt and my husband quilted it on our newly acquired long arm machine. We are novice quilters on the machine, but think it turned out pretty good. We did get a couple of wrinkles in the backing - the fabric I used there stretched. We know if will take a lot of practice.

    Nice quilt. Years ago while living in Albuquerque I met and worked with Don Perkins. He was a pleasure to know.

    If you want to mail it to me, I could test it out for you!
    I am a Cowboy fan too!

    Tom Landry, Randy White, Too Tall Jones, Dorsett, E Smith, are just a few of the great ones! I could go on and on and on!

    Nice quilt.....may I ask where you got the fabric? I can find only one of the several you used.....My daughter's boyfriend is a big fan, and that gives me an idea for a Christmas gift for him.....

    That is a stunning quilt. Congrats on the longarm. The more you do, the easier it gets. Your muscles get trained and you get faster. What a wonderful thing that your husband is interested.

    Glad you liked the quilt! I do not remember where all the fabric came from. My sister gave me some, some from thrift store but the TEXAS fabric is actually bandanas we bought several years ago.
