Some of the winners – International Quilt Festival Houston.

These are just a few of the winning quilts at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I will add more as when I get to take the photos over the next few days.

I like to look at the quilts in detail, I study them depth, each and every one.

Houston Happiness for yet another day.

So today I continue sharing some of the photos I took on the previous day. I will say that you the viewer are getting a more than biased view of the exhibits because I photograph only the Quilts that I have an interest in. I celebrate the creator, and marvel at their ingenuity and skill as quilters.

The tears flowed – 1776, Heartache, Heritage and Happiness.

This year it significant because last night I gave my 1776, Heartache, Heritage and Happiness Quilt to the International Quilt Study Centre and Museum and the tears flowed. My heart is heavy, but happy, knowing I’ve done the right thing to continue the legacy and life of the quilt.

Its a huge wrench to part with part of my soul, part of my life for so many years and part of my families history. However, it’s going to be shared now rather than live its life in a safe at home. I hope its viewed by people who love it as much as I do and I know I will visit often.

Then some wonderful young Aussie designers featured in this amazing booth. The daughters and grandies in our family would love this.
