Off to Houston!

I'm so excited to be going off to International Quilt Festival in Houston! I'm heading to the airport in the morning and hoping to get in on time to attend Preview Night and at least some of the quilts before I fall in a heap at the Four Seasons across the street from the Convention Center. It's been an exhausting couple of weeks in my other life and it's catching up with me.

I'm sort of astounded to have five quilts showing at Festival this year including "Mated for Life" (above) debuting in the Tactile Architecture exhibit and "Bella Camellia" in In Full Bloom - both shows will travel to various venues around the country for a year.

"Down in the Grove" (below) is in the IQA World of Beauty competition and I also have an entry in the What's For Dinner? exhibit and a 12" quilt "Mated for Life II" which will be sold (hopefully) in the SAQA Benefit Auction.

I've got two full days just to wander, shop, sit in on a few lectures, see friends and find new inspiration. I'll be posting on Facebook and maybe do a blog post or two while I'm there to share what inspires me!


  1. Please post until your thumbs are sore!

  2. Congratulations on having so many pieces accepted. I love both Mated for Life pieces and the SAQA one certainly did sell. Enjoy the show.

    1. Thanks! Can't wait for the email to find out who bought it.
