Picking a favorite quilt at a quilt show
is a little bit like picking a favorite child.
In reality, you
Love Them All
But, if I were to pick a favorite
from the IQF Long Beach Show
it would be
Houston Texas Temple
Carolyn expressed my very deep felt sentiments
when she wrote
"The Houston Texas Temple has a special place in my heart.
It is a place where serenity and peace
and religious doctrine is taught.
This temple is a source of strength for me and many others.
As I made this quilt I listened to Josh Groban's
and came to understand even more that this is what
the temple does for me-
-it raises me up to
more than I can be."
The Houston Texas Temple
was dedicated in 2000
Carolyn did an excellent job of
replicating the exterior architecture and
look of the
Luna Pearl granite.
Such amazing detail
clear down to the
stain glass windows
