That’s it folks. No more time. Quilts from the International Quilt Festival Houston

This has to be my last post with the quilts from the International Quilt Festival Houston.

I didn’t have time to work yesterday because I had adventures of another type well away from the genre of Quilting. Luana Rubin and I were given the honor of a visit deep into the body of the Nasa Ground Control by Dr Jack Bacon and Astronaut Victor Glover at the Johnson Space centre. It was an honor and I thank them both most sincerely for the amazing opportunity.

The Fabric Trail – Houston International Quilt Festival

Well, here we are, the wonderful Quintessential Quilt Event is over, the bags are packed, the patrons have wended their way home and there were just a few die hard guests at breakfast this morning. Today, my husband Keith and our friend Julie Haddrick, laden with luggage leave the shores and I continue on for another 3 weeks of adventures.

I wanted to take the opportunity to share with you the exhibition curated by Julie. The group are from our home city. Adelaide and the exhibition is sponsored in part by our local Guild.

‘Going to Houston’

My experiences have grown each year. They’ve come from naive toddler steps to bold adult strides. Not that these short legs can take a long stride. It’s been a growth of confidence, knowledge, talent and a willingness to accept. The talent grew from observing and studying the masters of quilting and then saying ‘What if we approached it this way’ There is also a generosity of spirit and the Staff are willing to share, listen and assist.
