Texas theme quilt

One of the many things that I enjoy about traveling and teaching, is staying in the homes of kind quilters who share their quilting treasures with me and are inspiring. On my trip to Texas last month, I stayed with Deborah Woolley at her lovely lake side home in Cypress on the northwest side of Houston. This quilt, Deep in the Heart of Texas, was hanging in her living room.

Blue is my favorite color, so I was immediately drawn to the quilt and then enjoyed looking at all the details invoking Texas in the blocks. Carrol Stewart, a long-arm quilter and teacher in the Cypress area, altered a pattern by Glenda Stephens called Nowhere But Texas. Deborah pieced and assembled the quilt and Carrol quilted it. Of course there are plenty of cowboy accessories, long-horn cattle, a windmill, stars, the lovely Texas bluebonnet and the central map. Here some shots to help you catch the wonderful details that include embroidery and embellishments.

    • This is a sampler quilt. I’m sorry, I don’t have any information on where you can get the windmill pattern.

  1. What an amazing quilt. Always drawn to the combination of embroidery and quilting. Do you have a source for recreating this design?

    • I’m sorry, I do not. You could try contacting the pattern designer and/or quilt stores in the Houston area. I hope you can find it.

    • You could try contacting the people mentioned in the blog, (the pattern designer and the maker of the quilt) and/or quilt stores in the Houston area. I hope you find it.
