I decided I should do the hardest applique first or it might not ever get finished. So this last week I tackled the bluebonnets. There are over 50 little flower petals in each stem of the bluebonnets. I think I must have lost my mind to do this!
I still have to add another leaf set in the white background and a star in the blue background. No Texas quilt would be complete without a star, right?
Today I worked on the barbed wire panels. There are two of these and I love the Texas fabric. I hope you can zoom in on it and see the Alamo and the oil field, and the longhorns. It's perfect for a Texas Snapshots quilt.
Next I will work on the 8 small applique blocks. Not sure when I'll get to that. I counted today and have approximately 12 days of quilting to complete the quilts I need to finish for customers before I leave to go to Missouri and I only have 11 days available to quilt. I don't leave in 11 days, just have other commitments that are requiring my time so that leaves 11 days. I thought I quit work to catch up. What happened to that plan?
