International Quilt Festival

What a trip, Houston was a blast! I have to warn you I do not have any quilt pictures, I barely saw the show. I know there are lots of people who have taken pictures and have posted them in their flicker accounts, so if I come across a good showing I will post a link. OK, I found one here. I have photos of some of the fun happenings in the Quilting Arts/Cloth Paper Scissors area to come.

Quilt Festival is more than just a quilt show. I have gone 12 years in a row and there is nothing better than seeing those friends who have become so dear over the years that I see each October/November. This is like an annual reunion of soul sisters.

We began our trip around the exhibits Wednesday night, trying to find each others quilts hanging in the show and catching up on what has been happening in the last year.

Including a knee surgery and hip replacement for two friends, which led to a moment to rest on the show floor, with lots of laughter and photos followed by a fabulous dinner at the restaurant at the Hilton, then wine, snacks and stitching in the lounge area on our floor of the hotel until the wee hours.
