QV2016: Day 19: Houston International Quilt Festival

7 11 2016

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 just a few of them here.




We have our farewell drinks and dinner tonight and then it’s back to the normality of everyday life.
