Quilt Festival

Today is the first full day of Quilt Festival in Houston.  From what I have seen on facebook and twitter people are having a great time. It is a great show a little overwhelming the first time you go.  So many quilts, so little time.

Here are some more quilts from the show.  These are from the “Innovative Applique” category.  If you would like to see all the winning quilts from this years Festival go to:

                            This quilt placed 3rd. All of those little pieces are appliqued

I have decided to host a Saturday Sampler next year.  We will start in January.  I can’t tell you much about it because it is a "Mystery".  Each month you will get a part of the quilt.  I will have the rules and sign ups soon in the shop.

Best of Show

Back home in Colorado we had our second snow storm this fall. My trees are taking a beating.  Mr Moda is not bothered by the snow. He follewed me around the yard checking on the trees.

Sue McCarty from Roy, Utah, was the Handi Quilter “Best of Show” winner at the International Quilt Festival,

Quilt Show

Here are some more quilts from the quilt show. These quilts were entered in the “Celebrate Spring” and “ Floral” categories.  It is nice to see some people have a sense a humor as seen in the first quilt.  Lions faces in the flowers.  The next quilt used beads for the centers to give it some texture. I took a close up shot of the center.

I have exciting news, while I was at Quilt Market I met with Traci Suzanne Marvel. Traci is Director of Marketing  (aka Dirctor of Fun and Enternainment)  for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company . We will be working together this coming summer. I am very excited about having Traci coming to Colorado.

I had a true six degrees of separation while in Houston.  I had been talking with Traci at Bigfork, Traci and Pat Sloan are working together, Pat Sloan is joining the Moda team this Spring and Bigfork is talking with Moda. Here is one of Pat Sloans projects with Bigfork.
