Tex-Mexican Birthday Party

The first time I saw this pattern, I saw piñatas in the negative space.  We love all things Tex-Mex down here in San Antonio, and when I look at this quilt, I feel the need to drink a margarita, do a Mexican hat dance, and bust a pinata.  In that order, mind you.


Truth be told, this wasn’t a quilt I wanted to make.  I was sort of pushed into it by a friend.  And thank goodness for her because this was seriously the most fun I have ever had making a quilt.  I worked on it at two weekend quilting retreats because I just had to make one more block.  16 times.


And now the quilt is living with my friend Keri.  I miss the quilt so much that I might need to file for visitation.  This is the quilt I wish I had in my collection. The one I was saddest to let go (yet thrilled it was going to someone who loves it like I do).  My favorite from the last 21 years of quiltmaking.

Pattern is in Material Obsession 2.

    Love love love love LOVE! My only spiderweb quilt to date is this one: http://www.cascadequilts.com/2011/03/spiderweb-selvage-quilt-top.html and it’s still a ‘top’. I am afraid to quilt it!
