One Week Left Before Christmas Day…

One week left until Christmas Day. I hope that doesn’t strike fear in your  heart as

you read that last sentence. I still don’t have all my shopping done or wrapped and

Christmas cards didn’t happen again this year. All of my customers’ quilts did get

finished and on time too.

There are a few more pictures from The Houston Quilt Festival, 2018. I hope that you are

not getting sick of me still talking about it. I just want to share some beautiful quilts with

you.

I love this quilt, the colors, the lady in the quilt and the stitching, of course.

But for the life of me, I can not figure out how she made this quilt.

Even the up close pictures is not helping me. I love trying to figure out

how a quilt was constructed. Any ideas?

This is quite the quilt as well. The creator hails from Japan.

A close up of the boat.

Speaking of close ups. this shows a portion of the Best of Show Quilt. Look at

all the detail and the quilting.

Jacqueline De Jonge is the designer of this quilt.

The  kids are having a blast. Brings a smile to my face every time I look at this

quilt.

Lisa Calle’s Quilt

I met Lisa at her booth at the Festival. She is very down to earth and talented.

More close ups and great texture.

Too bad I didn’t get the whole picture of this quilt. I was running around trying to

get lots of interesting shots of quilts that I liked. There were so many quilts and not

enough time to see them all.

I love these boats and the colors too.

Interesting color choices.

Again, I love the colors, the picture and the quilting.

Great colors!!

A more traditional quilt. Very intricate.

An award winning Alphabet Quilt.

Betty Busby created this colorful quilt.

More close ups.

Love the colors and the lines.

Colorful Trees

Colorful Horses

This quilt had all kinds of fabrics on it: cheesecloth, wool roving, tulle. What fun to use all

of these fibers in a quilt.

Dots

Being creative is so much fun and sometimes so simple. Dots! Who would have thought.

Love the colors.

Birch trees, far away and up close and personal.

A Japanese applique quilt. It is fun to look at all the detail in this quilt.

I am on the left in the picture.

Have a great week.
