It has been a great past few days, a lot is going on around here! In a way, nothing unusual but I guess what has been happening is not the norm!
Thursday was my day for being a quilt angel at the Houston International Quilt Festival! I made my trek downtown and got parked and off to work I went! Well it wasn’t really work, but more like Christmas – seeing what was going to come out of the box, one by one!
I am always simply amazed at the volume of talent that is out there – incredible!
These are as they were hung and not in any particular order, I hope you enjoy the “mini” show.
This one was 3-D from a distance, sure enough I walked up and it really was.
I am always amazed at the Japanese quilts that are entered. The intricacy is far beyond what I can comprehend. I do wonder how long it takes them to make a quilt and if they have more than one going at a time.
This one is made from men’s ties and was very impressive!
I love to be surprised by quilts made from people I know. Valerie Wagner made this quilt. I love all the color and interest it has Valerie!
This one was all hand quilted and they were beautiful!
Some of these are just ones I liked and wanted to share!
This year Festival is doing a tribute to commemorate the life and talent of Sue Garman. I have always been in awe of her talent and she is dearly missed. After my scheduled time I decided to go over and look at all of her quilts on display. For some reason it really felt like I was on hallowed ground. It ended up being very emotional for me; these are just some of her quilts.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
