this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Things Texas Revisited

A new blogging friend asked about the patterns to my "Things Texas" quilt. I had to think really hard about where those patterns were. It took me a couple of weeks to dig them out. I decided to re-post about the process and share the patterns with anyone who's interested.
As you can see from the photo, there are lots of what I call blank spaces throughout some of the designs. I am linking to my tutorial about how to do this particular process. It's a bit time consuming but well worth the effort.

  • Below are the patterns I used. Just right click on each page then copy and paste them into you own document. You can then enlarge each pattern to your desire.
  • I chose fabrics that would show off the silhouettes.
  • I used Steam-a-seam or Heat-n-Bond as an adhesive backing on the black silhouette fabric.
  • Note: One thing I failed to mention in the last video is that I had removed the adhesive before the final placement and pressing.
  • After pressing the silhouettes into place, I stitch the raw edges into place stitching as close to the edges of each pattern as possible.
  • The videos were made in August 2009 where I mentions a silhouette give away of that cow. Well obviously that was years ago but I do have a little surprise this August 2013. Scan down to the bottom of this post to see what's up.

The tiger is an example of another way to use an image as a silhouette and use more colors to jazz up the image.
It is my give away design for this particular post.
It is unfinished in that I have not stitched it down, never got around to it so it landed in my UFO box......LOL.
If you are interested in this unfinished block measuring
 approximately 12 1/2 inches just leave a comment and mention
 your favorite
 and it's that easy!!

You are to share generously all your creativity with us! I am pleased about the patterns for the Texas quilt. The Tiger you have made is really natural and I admire him. Unfortunately I would not handle it with my skills. I would be very proud if I would win it.

My favorite animal is the dog. Now several years we had a 'holiday dog' say: if its owner in holiday went we got him. I quickly realized how smart, but also such an animal is how affectionate and loyal! Unfortunately he died last year, but not without saying goodbye from me! I still often think of him.

Hard to pick a favorite, perhaps a cat, Siamese cat to be specific. Love your tiger.
