Texas Two-Step with Diagonal Set


Growing old is mandatory.  Growing up is optional.  Laughing at yourself is therapeutic.

Carolyn Lopez took the Texas Two-Step lap quilt class the very first time I taught it at a Quilt Guild of Greater Houston retreat. The block has a diagonal line which makes many different settings possible. Carolyn managed to come up with a set I had not seen. I was delighted.  This quilt is an example of what I call “related fabrics” which in this case is Civil War reproductions with a common background.
