I just love the shade of red in this quilt……it is fantastic!
I didn’t get to go this year so I pulled out some of the quilt tops I purchased in Texas after the show at Antique stores in the area. I am still excited that I took a little extra cash to make these purchases.

Waxahatchi Quilt #2 Tulip Bulb – I think…
The second quilt top I purchased in Waxahatchi Texas. The red is so deep and strong in this quilt. The blocks are sewn together with black thread? I think that is strange… stranger yet is that it looks like one seam is machine sewn and the next is hand sewn.
I do think that the black stitching around the applique looks wonderful. I don’t even want to quilt this because it is so interesting to analyze the back of the quilt.
I do not see this pattern very often.
Here is a repair that was made prior to my purchase. I would say it is a little on the rough side but certainly keeps the hole from getting any larger.
Do you think a little mouse got at this one?
A bit of a pucker on this one…..
Two layers of fabric were quilted under this hole.
Waxahatchi Blu Daisy
I really don’t know the formal name of this pattern.
This is one of my favorite blocks – polka dots
The villian of quilts ….. mice…..
