    Houston Texans/ Carpenters Star quilt :-)

    I was asked to make a Houston Texan themed quilt. It took me a while to settle in on pattern but really happy with how this one came out. Pieced and quilted with Aurifil thread. The applique is was done with a coloring page I found online and just raw edge applique. Quilting done on my Tin Lizzy. Thanks for looking :-)

    OH that is beautiful and makes me home sick. I went for a recent walk at a wild life preserve and saw some long horned cattle too (Texas long horns).
