South by Southwest©…in Pictures
By Beverly Hicks Burch
Well, it took just a little over seven months start to finish to complete our first joint project…but, YAY!…it’s done! Binding? Check! Rod pocket? Check! Label? Check! See…I told you so…
Tall & Handsome and I began machine piecing the project on New Year’s Day 2009…a nice way to begin a New Year, right? I put the last stitch in the binding on Monday July 20, 2009…and Viola, c’est fini! Just a refresher…this quilt is a nod to our combined heritages…The pattern is the Tennessee Waltz to commemorate my Southern-ness and the state where I was born. We used Southwestern fabrics for a nod to T & H’s southwestern roots and his home state of New Mexico.
So here are a few pictures I snapped indoors and outdoors today to give you an idea of what our new “baby” looks like…
