Houston International Quilt Festival 2015

I spent 6 days  at the festival.  It was better than Disneyland! Everyone there was happy and excited.  You could not stand in line or sit down without starting a conversation.

Let me share some of the quilts from the show.

  1. WHOA! The level of detail in the Founders Award one and the Best In Show are a little terrifying. Actually in ALL of them. And I can imagine that you’d need a whole week for a biiig show like that. A lot of fun energy with all of those crafters together in one place!

    I found the coolest thing – Japanese family crests. They reminded me of superhero symbols, but I also realized that they could very handily be used in quilting – which of course is why I needed to show you!

    1. Thanks for the link. I’ve had the same thoughts about the crests. I actually have a whole book on Japanese crests and a quilting book with crests turned into quilt blocks. I’ve made one block so far. Some day I’ll have a quilt with a bunch of them.
