Online Quilt Festival

Park City Girl is hosting an online Quilt Festival and has asked us to post our favorite quilt we have made and tell about it.

This is called Long Horn Pride. I designed and made this for my son. He is a HUGE University of Texas fan and this is what he wanted for his quilt. My friend Liz (aka Liz the Whiz or LTW) did the custom quilting for me on it and I love it. I have posted about this quilt in the past and I still love it.

I have finished another top and will take a minute to post about that one too. In the mean time, go visit Park City girl and get in on the fun!

So cool....I love that I see the UT but also see a quilt pattern as well. So often when quilters make themed quilts (I've not made one yet) I just see the theme but I love that I also see a design. Really great work.

Love the fact that you made him a longhorn quilt. Having lived in Texas I know the loyalties are very strong. What a wonderful gift.
