    WOW!!!! That is amazing - way to go! I love the originality you added into it - you made it your own, as they say on American Idol! Fantastic job. Did you keep track of hours, or time spent? You must've cruised like crazy.

    I love how you made the quilt larger by echoing the "wedges" of the border.

    Because of its size, I personally would be limited to hand quilting, so my thinking automatically goes to hand quilting and looking at each individual block and doing what works for it.

    Klue, I am unbelievably touched that you would take the time to put your personal "stamp of approval" on My Texas Jane. You and your beautiful work has always been an inspiration to me. I miss seeing your creations. I miss you, too.
    My sis, Gangles on the board, is a wonderful hand quilter, but the genes didn't rub off on me. I'm still undecided.
    Thanks for the links for the other quilt and echo quilting.
    Now to make the big decision.
    Again, my thanks.
    Bettye

    Glad I got the hand quilting genes, but you are the most talented quilter, except for maybe our other sis. Cant wait to get my hands on it, and i will gladly help you quilt it.

    I pray the Lord lets me live long enough to make one of these but He is going to have to multiply my talents. The hope keeps me quilting. I am amazed by your work and the work of others like you.

    I love it, especially the center block. I understand your son is an Aggie, but where is a block of a LongHorn, you have other pics that relate to this great state, but no long horn, not necessarily UT long horn. My neice and her hubby are Aggie graduates. I'm a UT grad. but love all things pertaining to Tx. in general. I love the Tx. touch you gave this quilt. Gerbie

    Gerbie, my Grandson is an Aggie thus the A&M logo. He said if I put a longhorn on it he would dehorn it personally. They love to egg-on the rivalry! (I did have a longhorn cut out but had too much trouble with the machine applique on the ends of the horns so it was either I omit it or dehorn it myself. Ironic thing is we have longhorn cattle on our farm. (The beef doesn't taste like a UT longhorn, tho.)
    Just an aside, I lived in Ft Stockton back in the late 60-early 70. Love the area still. Have to visit Big Bend every couple of years.

    Your quilt is absolutely wonderful. I don't know if I could work on something for 5 months. I get too distracted with other ideas. Good for you.

    I understand the rivalary well. I have lived in Pecos since 1970. My DH and I met while working at the Duval plant between Imperial and Stockton, and were both transferred to Pecos. We married in 70. He came in 69 and I was transferred in 70 when they closed the plant there. I grew up in McCamey and he in Alpine. I love this part of Tx. Lived in Ky. for 2 yrs and W. Va. for 7, (I hated every day I was there), and finally got back home. My dad was in the oil & gas business when we lived in Ky. and W. Va.

    If your sisters do as beautiful work as you, we would dearly love to see their work too.

    Ohhhh My Goodness! What an amazing, beautiful, gorgeous quilt. Color me ever color of impressed there is. You did a fabulous job. Thank You so much for sharing. As for the quilting, I've been looking at the pics & I don't have a clue. I keep saying to myself, "Don't take away from the beautiful blocks & the piecing." Anxious to see what you decide.
