Texas Memories Embroidered Quilt

Went to an embroidery retreat the latter part of November.  The store where I teach hosted it.  Huge success!  Plans are in the making to do this every year, maybe more than once.  The owner of the store digitized the designs for us and made a quilt using Texas themed fabrics.  Nice quilt, but not my cup of tea.  His has the embroidery on point with red and blue triangles making the block.  Sashing and borders are the Texas Wildflowers fabric, and it was a large quilt.  Mine is smaller, about 53" square.

I saw his designs as he was working on them and when I found this Texas panel by Moda I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this quilt.

Here's a couple of close up shots of the embroidery.  There are 12 different designs, based on old farm equipment and Texas wildflowers.

And here's the quilt top!

The backing and binding will be the same fabric as the corner squares.  Now I just need to figure out how to quilt this!!!

Keep on Stitchin'!!
