International Quilt Festival

I finally got around to looking at all the pictures I took at the International Quilt Festival in Houston and thought I'd share them here. Keep in mind that I didn't photograph all the quilts that were displayed; just the ones that I liked the best, or ones that I have the pattern for and thought of making. It's always nice to see someone else's interpretation of a familiar pattern.

Close-up shots of the quilt above:

A Dear Jane quilt, which I have no desire to make, but I like seeing ones that others have made:

It seems that I am partial to the medalion-style quilts as that is mostly what I took pictures of; odd that I've never made a medalion quilt......I knew that I was partial to the appliqued borders on pieced quilt, and frequently use that technique.

Here's a view from the second floor of the vendor section. There were literally hundreds of different vendors and lots of nice things for sale.

Here's a picture of me with one of my internet quilting friends, Eileen from New York, whom I got to meet at the Festival on Friday. (I'm the one in yellow.)

I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures, but they really don't do justice to all the beautiful quilts. If you ever have a chance to attend and are a quilter, I highly recommend the trip.
