This was my most favorite quilt in the show....and of course, it was a scrap quilt!
It caught my eye from across Market Hall and I couldn't wait to get over there to see it up close. It is stunning. It was made by Helen Widener of Irving, TX and is a repro of a quilt in The Alamo made by Davey Crockett's wife, Elizabeth.
I LOVED it! So imagine my elation when I found this in a vendor booth!
It seems this was Helen's first quilt, according to the gal in the vendor booth, and a book was made all about the quilt, the fabrics etc. I was thrilled!!! There is a ton of fabric history in the book, as well as historical info on Elizabeth Crockett, and step by step instructions for making this fabulous quilt!
Another reason to collect even more repro fabrics!
I just really loved this quilt!
My best of show!
More quilt pics coming soon!
