The Fort Velasco Quilt (2016)
by Kay Cherry (donated by Kay Cherry and the Old Velasco/Surfside Beach Historical Committee) plexiglass frame donated by ICS, Inc., Building Group
The center panel was designed as a row by row and displays the theme graphics. The Republic of Texas flag and canon are memories of the Texas Revolution. Photos were transferred to fabric. Other techniques include machine embroidery and appliqué. The Texas Navy flag later became the official flag for the State of Texas. The center quilt panel was bordered using an adaptation of a quilt pattern from Cactus Quilts, Texas City. The long arm quilting was done by artist, Kaye Naranjo, Dickinson, Texas. Piecing by Kay Cherry, Houston, Texas.
The quilt is washable in cool water with mild soap, gentle wash and dry. Store quilts in a cloth bag or pillowcase rather than a plastic bag.
Many thanks to all, especially to Kay Cherry for her beautiful creation and for her service to our committee. The flag over Fort Velasco will fly again!
