It was so excited to be able to go to Houston International Quilt Festival again. I submitted my Lily Quilt for 'In the American Tradition' exhibit and I was delighted they accepted it.
Another awesome part of Quilt Festival is meeting people. This is Dawn whose blog is called Collector with a Needle.
Patchwork Inspirations who was visiting from France. She is a sweetheart. It was so interesting to visit with her and her husband. Together with Lori of Humble Quilts who I met last year. Lori is full of ideas and issued us a challenge to do something with an antique block which we could choose from some she brought. I will post more about that later. It was really cool to run into her again at the antique quilt booths and look at some beautiful and some interesting old quilts together.
Sue from the UK whose blog I have followed for years. We were in a class together with Lori on my last morning there.
And then it was time to come home to regular life with piles of new quilting ideas in my head :0)
I didn't get pictures with everyone I was happy to see again like Judith of Juud's Quilts and Mary Koval, and Bernadette who was busy in the WonderFil Threads booth. (and then I haven't worked up the courage to ask Jane Lury for a picture yet) However, it is the people and the antique quilts that are my favorite parts about going to this show.
