    Last summer when Klue, Esq and Sandpat were discussing the Jane Stickle quilt I decided I NEEDED to make one, too. I started on Nov 17 (kept a block diary) and finished piecing the top with 2 borders on May 15. If I take out a month we were away plus Christmas week, thats less than 5 months start to finish. They were addicitve! I only pieced a few with the applique since I'm not an appliquer and the rest I machine pieced, no PP. I did substitute about 15 blocks with my Texana pieces and others with midget block at random. My favorite is the A&M logo (where my oldest grandson is studying thru the Seaman to Admiral program in the US Navy). Now the hard part of quilting it! I'm very open to suggestions as how to showcase the quilt with the quilting. I just got a LAQ but haven't developed any skills with it.

    Very nice -- I love the Texas touch -- and a great way to bypass the techniques that you do not want to do!

    The cathedral looking ones are pics of the back of the quilt as it was hanging in my garage doorway. When I saw it I dedided I had to have pics of the backside, also.

    I love the individuality you gave to this quilt -
    - the colors
    - the blocks that are "yours"
    - the very unique border - love those elongated diamonds that you used

    The photo you took of the sun shining through the quilt to make the "cathedral windows" is a springboard for a whole other project.

    There are few words adequate to describe the beautiful work you have in this quilt. It is like reading a book. Study one block and move on to study the next block. I don't want to miss seeing a single block because each one is unique within itself.
    Welcome to the quiltingboard. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. I am glad you have joined us.

    a friend from here emailed me and said i had to come by the site and look at your quilt and boy was she right!!!!

    this is just amazing. i love how the trip around the world just pops out and that you put texas as the center block.

    you did an amazing job in record time i'm truly floored by its beauty.

    outline and echo quilting is very popular but i've also seen an allover design that looks just as lovely, just work within your comfort zone.

    here's a link to the allover meandering.
