Deep in the Heart of Texas Roadtrip Quilt Along

Hey y'all! I'm here to share some information about a fun new quilt along being organized by Melissa at My Fabric Relish and Cristina at Pretty Little Quilts. I'll be representing my hometown of Beaumont on July 10th.

Starting June 1st, we will be taking a virtual road trip across Texas! On the road trip, we will be learning how to make a Texas Quilt. The quilt will be similar to Cristina's Texas quilt, except that ours will have a bunch of fantastic cities represented with their own custom blocks!

At each city stop we will learn how to make a block designed for that city, learn about quilt shops and touristy spots around the area and get the chance to win some awesome prizes! The final link-up and Quilt Parade will be on August 17th.

The schedule for the QAL is as follows:

June 2 - Dallas - Ashley at Urban Spools
June 5 - Tyler - Colleen guest blogger at Pretty Little Quilts
June 12 - Fort Worth - Lindsey and Jodie at Fort Worth Fabric Studio
June 16 - Amarillo - Aoife at thREDhead

July 17 - College Station - Hilary at Young Texan Mama

This sounds really interesting! Plus, it would be a fabulous way to add more TEXAS quilting bloggers to my reader. :-)

How exciting! I grew up in Pittsburg, Texas, which is about an hour from Tyler.

Glad I found your blog Taryn! I'm also in Houston and I haven't run into many quilters (not to mention many local quilt shops). I love your quilts and I think we have very similar tastes. I look forward to more posts and keeping up with you! I would love for you to browse my blog as well. Thanks and have a great weekend! Jennifer Gwyn, Houston, TX
