on show…

One of the main reasons for my recent trip to the US was to visit the International Quilt Festival in Houston. It was huge, with rows and rows of vendor stalls, let alone another equal-sized area full of quilts on display.
These photos are taken from a window on the top level looking down:

We left late each day, trying to pack as much in as we could.

Quilt Festival- leaving for the day


Next time I’ll show some more photos taken at the Festival- I saw some beautiful quilts there!
The members of Gatton Quilters have certainly also been very busy over the past month, if their ‘show and tell’ display at Saturday’s meeting is anything to go by. I unfortunately don’t have any finished projects for showing at the moment, but can show you the works of these busy ladies.
