So Worth It

(source)

Binding is still not my favorite thing to do, but it is done.
The inspiration for the Wild About Texas quilt came from looking at wildflower photographs taken by Richard Reynolds.
I told my friend, Nancy Reynolds, that I wanted to make a quilt to showcase these photographs.
Nancy steered me to the Moda Wildflower viii fabric collection.
Richard printed out the photos for me.
Thank you, Richard and Nancy.

I started this Wild About Texas Quilt on April 1.
I finished piecing the quilt on April 3.
My friend, Jeana Kubik and I consulted designs for the long arm.
Jeana did a beautiful job.
Thank you, Jeana.
She encouraged me to include this quilt as one of three entries in the Greater San Antonio Guild Quilt Show.
Finishing a project is such a good feeling.
It was so worth taking the time to do  it slowly, instead of rushing through it.
   

After I finished working on the quilt, I accompanied my husband to Wal-Mart. As we entered the store, he told me he would meet me in the fabric area when he found what he needed. I guess he knows me well.
I found some more fabric for the #iwishyouamerryquiltalong.

I also saw this bundle that put me in a fall state-of-mind. I thought I could use it to make a fall tote or something.

The other day, when I was with my sister, she reminded me that I had promised her a mug rug.
She reminded me that she wanted polka-dot.
Black and white polka-dot, to be exact.
So, I saw these and added them to my basket.

These fabric purchases are my reward for finishing the binding.
