Our last full day in Houston today, and the last day of the 2016 Houston International Quilt Festival.
I was off to the vendor mall first thing to get a sewing machine tote that will double as an extra suitcase. Got a reasonable deal too 😉 Then it was off to view the quilts I wanted to see more closely.
I was particularly taken with one small exhibit — the Cherrywood fabric challenge, which this year was on The Lion King. Each participant got a yard of the same colour fabric from Cherrywood, then had to use other Cherrywood fabrics to complete their 20 x 20 piece. These were small art quilts but they were just stunning. There was some superb artistry in these works. I’ve highlighted a few of them here; you can view all 450+ photos I took at the Quilt Festival here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rhondamadeit/albums/72157674850354320
We have our farewell drinks and dinner tonight and then it’s back to the normality of everyday life.
