My Mother was two things……
AN AMAZING QUILTER
A TEXAN THRU and THRU!!!!
One of her favorite songs was “The Yellow Rose of Texas”…..especially when Ernest Tubb was singing it…..
She would sing the first few lines over and over and over!!!
So, I guess that it was no surprise that she chose to make a quilt called “The Yellow Rose of Texas”……
It contained so many of her loves…..Texas….Roses…..Needle-turn Applique…..Embroidery and Hand-Quilting!!!
In her patient way, she created 25 rose blocks…..EXACTLY THE SAME…..
….each complete with a small embroidered bee…..
And to set it off, she added the scalloped border….what a great touch.
She quilted around each of the roses and then added the same design in the alternating blocks…..
The result is a bright and cheery quilt and I break out into song every time I see it.
