Fabric Thursday: Deep in the heart of Texas Roadtrip Quilt!

I blame Cristina for this.

List most Texans, she is a force to be reckoned with. I didn't stand a chance.

But us Idaho girls are pretty wiley ourselves. I did it all in one day! Added the borders this morning, and this is my Texas Roadtrip quilt, that I'm pretty sure will be claimed by my Texas-loving boy James once it is done. And I have requests for more. Starting with one identical to Cristina's, because I LOVE the darker blue background, and all her fancy blocks in there.

I used a Happy Go Lucky jelly roll, so I had a bunch of 2.5" squares left over and didn't want to start a whole new project, so I added just a top/bottom border or edge or whatever you want to call it. Is there a word? Anyway, it makes it a nice twin-sized quilt. We're on the "tall-drink-of-water" side of things here, so we like bigger quilts.

Linking up with the quilt parade, and with Fabric Tuesday.
