As promised, here is today’s quilt block for my Texas Christmas Quilt. I picked up this block on my Texas Christmas Shop Hop from Kaleidoscope Quilt Shop. This shop is located in downtown Whitesboro. While the street view of the shop was not overly impressive, don’t let it fool you. The shop is super deep and has a wide selection of fabric and a super friendly staff. When I go back to this shop, I need to time it better. There is a yarn shop next door that is only open from 10-2 each day, that I would love to check out as well.
Now, back to the block. According to the pattern, this uneven 9-patch is attributed to Beth Gutcheon. Gutcheon is most known for her mystery novels, but her first two published books were actually quilting books. I opted to use the horseshoe fabric from the Howdy Christmas collection to add a little Texas flair to the traditional block.
Well since I have 22 more blocks to complete, I better get back to my sewing machine.
