Here are a few favorites from the Houston show that really caught my eye. Enjoy!
This piece was quite large (maybe 4'x5') and I loved the colorful shading on the bear's underside.
A sweet and simple composition, yet quite complex.
I was intrigued by the reds on top of the gradated background. This one was pieced, unlike mine that are a one cloth dip.
This was well worthy of the ribbon. Great perspective and color and vibrancy.
Great closeup detail!
Another great closeup...so subtle!
This simple piece captured a southwest feeling.
This small piece was full of life despite being a rainy day!
This five piece of the Sedona rocks was amazing!
I just returned from a great week in Texas where I visited good friends, reconnected with long lost ones, explored the city of Austin, skirted the storms, and made a quick visit to the International Quilt Festival in Houston. My quilted piece "My Circle of Life" was included in the SAQA exhibit there and I was able to view it, along with the thousands of other amazing creations that filled the George R. Brown Convention Center.
With only four hours, I focused mostly on the exhibits, and just made a quick pass through the marketplace. There I reconnected with an old friend from Gustavus, Annie Unrein, who owns byannie.com. Back in the exhibit hall, I wandered among incredible pieces and snapped photos of my favorites.
So little time...so much to see. It was amazing!
