Back from Quilt Market and Festival

I went back to Quilt Festival after Quilt Market in Houston, TX. Both take place at the George Brown Convention Center in Downton Houston. The place is huge. There is no way to possibly see every thing in one day. I spend a total of five days there and I skipped a few areas.

I did take some more pictures.

This was one of my favorites. There was so much detail and the minature quilts were darling.

This was the line checkout for the Primitive Gatherings Booth. I attempted to go through the booth once. It was really crowded.

Back view. Yes, back view...

Front view of quilt. I took a class Show Quilts, From Start to Finish Beutifully-Longarm Demo/Lecture given by the two ladies ( Linda Taylor & Cheri Meineke-Johnson) that made this quilt. The class was on how to make a show quilt. They explained their process. Cheri makes the quilt top and passes it on to Linda. Linda does the Quilting. Then Linda gives the quilt back to Cheri to complete. Cheri does the binding and embellishments. Both gave tips from start to finish on making a quilt. I really did enjoy the class. There was a lot of information given.

This is the Penny Rug I finished from another class I took. It was given by Kathy Kansier, Pennies from My Heart. This was a fun class as well. In addition to the project, she discussed topics such as dying wool, fusibles, felting wool, history of wool & rug hooking, and designing your own penny rugs.
