Lots of photos so grab a cuppa and sit down.

This was a custom order quilt for a woman in Texas. She loves her Alexander Henry fabric as much as I do.

She wanted the whole thing done in a "Teesha" way ( yikes! )

Hand quilt the whole thing together with a rainbow of colors and add flowers

Add shiny things for some bling

"Ric Rac and Rosaries" look good together. Who knew?

Named after St Francis so he needs to be added also (no St Francis to be found = make your own)

The Holy Trinity looks like they are little stoned (cracks me up)

St Anthony holding a "special needs" child (look at that face! I love it!)

One more for that extra smile

Now some randomness

Surround the entire thing in red-dingle balls and you have a kitschy made to order quilt.
43 x 50 in size and I think I need new finger tips.

Dude, that is totally going to be a Featured Project, if my "Rocks" vote counts for anything at least. Wink

I agree, this totally rocks.  What a lot of detail you put into this quilt, simply beautiful.

It is so great - such lovely details, and such phantasy and imagination. I agree, it rocks.
