Then I had her do stars and loops in the rail fence parts. Texas is the lonestar state.
I had a small inner border and you can see it on the left, she make barbed wire in this border.
The cheer or chant at UT is "Hook Em' Horns" which she stitched in each outside corner
On the stars, she outlined each one.
Here is the only photo I could get of the finished quilt as it is pretty large and I have no place to lay it out. I think you get the picture. You can see the whole top here.
Here is what she quilted in the outer border. Stars, swirls and repeats of the longhorn that I appliqued.
The only thing I didn't have a picture of is the label. I gave it to him on his birthday, the day after Christmas. He turned 17. You know how boys are and he never wants to show me any affection, but he scooped me up and gave me a HUGE hug. He just loves it! Thank you Liz for helping me bring my dream to life. You are so good to me! Are you up for Santa's Village ala, my head??
