With only one day up my sleeve, I knew I had to be selective about how I spent my time in Houston. I spent an intense morning viewing the thousands of quilts on display and spent much of the afternoon shopping and perusing the thousands of stalls. Of course, I had to arrange a meeting with this gorgeous lady who I have developed a connection with via 'Blogland' but have never met IRL.
She was so incredibly sweet and amazingly helpful and generous with her time. Thank you Victoria xx
Victoria introduced me to her wonderful friend Michele but I didn't get a chance to take a photo :(
I also got to attend a brief talk with Kaffe Fassett
And snapped a quick selfie with Ricky Timms
Apparently, Quilt Festival is a party!
But no one told these folks.
They were pooped after an exhausting day of shopping and perusing. I was too!!
But not too pooped to have an evening meal with this gorgeous bunch of Louisiana ladies that had adopted me the evening before in the hotel cafe.
They were so friendly and welcoming. Quilters are good folk!! :-)
And as well as the flesh and blood people I got to meet, there were some wonderful quilts depicting people ...
And of course there were the creatures ...
We quilters certainly to love our creatures!!
The only thing left to tell you about is the shopping I did in Houston. I'll be back VERY soon to show you the wonderful purchases I made. Yay!! Loot!!!!
Much crafty love to you.
Fabulous post - must get back and absorb as soon as time permits! Hugs.
I am so inspred by quilts featuring people. I'm new to piecing and have only attempted the humble square in a quilt to date... But one day...
Thanks so much for sharing all these images. Attending such a big event is beyond my current reality ... So to be there virtually through you is just wonderful.
... I bet there is going to be s load of goodness in that shopping post.
I love that dog at the end.
Shame you only had one day but it seems like you packed it in.
