Texas QAL

As soon as a friend of mine told me about the Texas QAL hosted by Pretty Little Quilts, I knew I had to join. We were so excited about it that between us, I think we came up with a million different variations to make it our own. I already have plans for a second to highlight my hometown.

The excitement proved too much and I just couldn't wait for all of the designed blocks to be announced over the summer, so I used the general pattern plus a couple of tweaks. I added a gray border and made the background the Texas flag. The Texas itself is bright scraps from a Union Jack quilt I made for a friend of mine earlier this year. I can't wait to get it quilted!

Enough talking and on to the pictures.
