Texas Wildflower Quilt

As I worked on finishing the Texas Wildflower Quilt, I couldn’t help but think of
Lady Bird Johnson.
Protecting the natural landscape was one of her major initiatives as First Lady.
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is a peaceful and lovely place to visit.

I did finish the quilt top today.
Now, I will try to design a backing with some of the remnants and a bit of yardage I bought for backing.

Many thanks to Nancy and Richard Reynolds.
Their friendship and creative works are inspirational.

Rain, Sunshine, and Wildflowers

A stormy morning turned into a beautiful day.
It was nice getting out for a while.
Then, I came in to finish the wildflower blocks and sashes.

The blue and red floral fabric did come out a bit too dark for this.
I’m hoping there will be more balance when I add the two borders.
