One jelly roll of Cotton and Steel Basics, a bit of yardage, some time, a lot of deliberation, and a "few" stitches later...
You get a quilt that belongs in the Texas Hill Country!
This one is being gifted to a wonderful family we have been friends with for a long time. And they just bought a "ranchette" a few minutes west of Austin. We just spent the weekend out there with them and seriously, "Ahhh, beautiful." is all that I can say.
The shadows highlighting the quilting from the back.
Rattlesnake print backing. Appropriate, no? Stitches, and more stitches.
I opted for a medallion like quilt again on this one.
One more picture.
