Texas Christmas

We met at Dahlia’s last night and discussed the Texas Christmas quilt that we are making for Relay for Life. Molly showed us the focus fabric and passed out baggies with FQs for us to make our blocks. We decided that we should each choose a block so we knew that we would have a good variety of blocks for the quilt. Once we each make our blocks and we start putting them together, we can determine if we need filler blocks. Those present committed to make the following blocks:

Molly – Steer with Christmas Lights
Annale – Texas and Alamo
Rhonda – Boot and “Howdy”
Kathy L – Cactus and Pieced Stars
Kathy E – “Merry Christmas Ya’ll” and Armadillo
Kay – Coyote
Patty – to be decided
Charlotte – to be decided
Jerri – to be decided
Kathleen – to be decided

Instructions for blocks: Use the fat quarters provided. You may use other fabrics that coordinate, but they must coordinate with the boot fabric.

Blocks must be finished and ready to be put together no later than August 15th. We want to have the quilt completed and ready to sell raffle tickets no later than November 12th at the Home for the Holidays.

Let’s get to sewing!

Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
