The Countdown to Christmas…

We are in the countdown to Christmas. I hope that you are getting

everything done for the big Day.

Here are some more photos from Houston and the International

Quilt Festival

Running Shoes

I really liked these red runners.

It is interesting to see these quilts up close and personal. It helps me break down how the

quilt was made. This one looks like it was created using raw edge applique or collage. And I love

the stitching on this piece as well.

The shadows and the laces are fascinating to me.

The colors of this wallhanging  made me want to take a closer look.

I can’t imagine making such a small log cabin. The blocks below

show how small they really are.

It was so much fun being able to look at these quilts so closely. The designers

stood in front of their quilt  and you could ask them all kinds of questions about how

they made their quilt. I love being able to pick peoples’ brains.

This blue bird looked like it was  painted onto the background fabric.

The Architecture of Trees

Suzan Engler created this digital piece. I sat beside her at the Winners’ Circle meal.

The top 8 winners sit on the podium and told their story about the quilt they

created and why. It was very interesting to hear each person tell their own unique story.

Look at all that gorgeous color!

Ruby

Roxanne Nelson,a Canadian,  won one of the three Judges’ Awards with this piece.

She also won at Quilt Canada last year with this piece as well. It is great when

Canadians win, we need to show the world that we can quilt too.

I hope you enjoyed the short show. There are more photos to come but I have

limited time right now to post. Have a great week!
