Time for your morning cuppa and a look at some of these beautiful quilts.
I can finally share some of the quilts that I love and have huge admiration for.
What do you look for in a quilt?
I look for design, depth, visual impact and meaning. I personally think that the quilting should be outstanding at this level.
Daylight saving has given me an extra hour today for which I am grateful. We leave for the Caribbean today and I won’t be able to access good internet, so I’m taking the opportunity to post a few more images before we leave. I have more to add, but I don’t have the time right now. Wheat field, Melissa Burdon, Groveton Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand.

Here at the Houston Quilt Festival, it’s an event of smiles.
50,000 smiles in fact. 50.000 people fly in planes, drive or come in buses to the George Brown Convention Centre in Houston all in the name of Textile Art and if you need to give it a label. “It’s essential Quilting”
Oh my, its just. Its been a whirlwind of engagements, inspiration and sheer fun. I haven’t had tie to breathe let alone do the blog, so this is the best I can do for today folks. Enjoy.
Day one of inspiration. I just love to examine how people think and interpret.
Mind boggling to say the least.
I just wanted to let you know that your lovely quilt, The 1776 Quilt: Heartache, Heritage and Happiness, did very well on its journey to Nebraska. It is now safely housed in our Isolation room, where new pieces rest for two weeks.The quilt is simply amazing – such an incredibly beautiful piece with exquisite workmanship. It truly is an outstanding gem in the Center’s collection.
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.
