Houston Quilt Market Day 2

Share it Please
Oh wow - another amazing day at Quilt Market in Houston!

Here are some of the quilts we saw en route to Starbucks each day...

Kiyomi Takayanagi - Departure
 The Jennings Homestead. Made by Suzanne Mouton Riggio and 26 Members of the Milwaukee Art Quilters
Yoshiko Miyamoto - Hope

 Ferret's quilt Prometheus is too big to display at it's full size - it's huge! You will be able to see the whole quilt hung in its full glory at the Sandown quilt show in 2013!
Ferret - Prometheus - A twist on an old favourite - Lone Star.

But before more photos of today, an update from last night's Handi Quilter Reception. We met up with the Aussie contingent - Narelle from the Australian Distributor for Handi Quilter, Michelle who is one of the Australian Handi Quilter dealers. We met Narelle in Salt Lake City two years ago at Handi Quilter HQ and we did long arm training together (plus some All Terain riding in the Rockies!). Michelle won Handi Quilter Dealer of the year. In the middle is Helen Godden who is a phenomenally good quilter whose work I absolutely love! So this was a real highlight for me. We had a really great night. They call themselves the Sweet Sixteen Sheilas!

 As for the show today (Day 2 already!) - we bumped into Ferret by the Pfaff stand - wearing her Phoenix coat. Incredible leather coat which looks even more incredible from the back...

Ferret checking out the Antique Quilts - nice contrast!
 The Moda stand is always impressive for its displays - we loved the Glamping feature!

It's worth saying its a HUGE show!

I would definitely have drawn a falic object if I had to use that scribble :)
