Texas Quilts That Inspire Both the Giver and Receiver

By  | 

Historic and contemporary Texas quilts have helped to create some of the warmest and most sincere gifts a friend or family member could hope to receive. They also showcase creativity in an art form that has been passed down from generation to generation; each one recreating the craft with touches of modern-day interests and emblems. Their motivation comes from the passions of those who are receiving the quilts that they lovingly make – many of whom are true Texans at heart. If, like those who received the quilts below, your family and friends have a great love of the Lone Star State, then these Texas quilt designs may be just the inspiration you need.
