Texas Dahlia Quilt
I loved the dahlia pattern from the first time I saw a picture of it in a quilting magazine. Several years passed while I improved my skills in piecing and tried to decide on a color scheme or theme. Then in another magazine I saw a picture of an Australia theme quilt. Loving both Austin,Texas, where I lived and Australia where I had visited, I began collecting Texas theme fabrics. In 2008 I pieced it and after moving to Tennessee, was fortunate to find Alice Boothe who quilted it for me. My niece, Theresa, will be pleased as I am with this quilt.
