Well, back from Quilt Market and Festival in Houston, and what a whirlwind of activity it was! If you have never been to Quilt Festival, I would highly recommend that you put it on your list of things to do and places to go. There are thousands of quilts to see and they are so inspirational. There is something for everyone; from traditional, antique, and modern quilts, to abstract and realistic art quilts. There are classes and continuous free demos (open studios) and mini lectures. One of the highlights this year was NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg who gave a talk and slide show about her experience of quilting in space. This year celebrated 40 years of great quilts with their Ruby Jubilee exhibit, and wow, it was spectacular!
You can see the winners from IQA's 2014 A World of Beauty quilt festival at.
Meanwhile, I'd like to leave you with some pictures of some other quilts that you may not get to see on the web page. I think I took over 500 pictures so I obviously can't post them all, but during this month I'll try to post a small sampling.

Here are a few from the Pictorial category.
So, that's it for now. Check the blog for more pictures next week. And, as always, Let me hear from you, especially if you have a special event or announcement or anything at all you would like to share!
