View of All of the Texas Braid So Far


But first, a picture of my morning view. This is the YMCA I frequent nearly every morning (except Sundays...yeah!!). I am always glad I went...later. This AM I increased the weight on 3 of my machines. It's amazing how much of a difference five pounds makes.

Once school was underway, I had two of my boys hold up the Texas Braid so you could get a peek at the whole thing. It's 98" long, so about 1/3 of it is draped over the back of the design wall in all my other pictures. I like how the occasional really dark or light brick makes the top seem to sparkle, but the red cornerstones down the middle of each row gives the eye a place to rest.

Calling to order a Handi-Quilter now. Yippee!!

Oh my.. I'm so happy for you! Can't wait to see all the quilts you'll make now.

I really need to stop organizing my scraps and start using them instead. I have Bonnie's book and your quilt has insprired me to try one of these too. It's beautiful!
