Official Go Texan Submission
Almost every year since I was 8 years old, which has been 7 years now, I have submitted a quilt in the Burleson County Fair. Pinwheels have always been one of my favorite styles of quilts, so I wanted to make one of my own. I selected the quilt fabric from all different fabric lines, staying in the brighter greens, pinks, blues, red, and yellow colors. I made all of the pinwheels to be different; that way every block would be unique. I also created this quilt myself without the use of pattern. Because I chose not to use a pattern and go the long way around, this has probably been one of my most time consuming and complicated quilts that I have ever made. Even though it was a lot more complicated then I had anticipated, the quilt turned out beautiful and I was very pleased with the outcome. The quilt has a loose rose quilted pattern to add to the quilt’s elegance. One of my friends, who was my old Sunday school teacher, has a wonderful long arm machine. She allows me to come and program the machine and do the quilting myself with her supervision.
