We are home from the Houston Livestock Show, a little tired and road weary.  William had a great experience showing his goat.  We didn't make the cut or place but we learned a few things and had a good time too.  I had a little treat myself; there was a display of the quilt entries.  Here are a few of my favorites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

You know I'm a sucker for a Texas theme.  This quilt was just adorable.  I have some hand embroidered cowboy blocks that I think I might use this layout with.  There were also a couple of other Texas themed quilts that I didn't take a picture of as I have those quilts in my collection already. 

And a tried and true Texas flag quilt.  Do you see the state quilted on the red/white section.  Very stunning!  I wish that I could have gotten a better picture but I was taking all of these pictures through a glass showcase.  I have a flag quilt I haven't quilted yet.  I might have to figure out how to do something similar.

The needle turn applique hand work was amazing on this quilt as was the quilting also.

And the Best of Show, A New York Beauty!  A quilt on my "bucket list".
