Here's my "dear diary" post from the Houston International Quilt Festival.... this may interest only me, but here goes anyway.
|My best quilt buddy Amy G. and I start off day one right!|
|The husband and his fancy red car. He was just awesome... drove me to Festival EVERYDAY! |
Even went back one day and picked up my mom, aunt, and two friends. Thanks Husband!
|At Quilt Market, I got to meet Amy Butler. Love her vibe!|
|At Quilt Market, I also got to meet and chat with fellow blogger pal Emily Breclaw. |
She is pictured in front of her beautiful quilt she created for the Hoffman Challenge.
Emily blogs about quilts and patterns she creates and also hosts a monthly series on Japanese quilts.
|Me, my mom and my Aunt Peggy.|
|Amy G. and I outside the GRB, on our way to Preview Night.|
|I was thrilled to meet up with Noriko Endo, a truly gifted quilt artist from Japan. During one of her afternoon's "off" from her busy teaching schedule at the International Quilt Festival, we visited the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange.|
|Gorgeous La Grange.|
|Noriko Endo inside her classroom, with Maggie Backman, the organizer of the whole Silk Experience series of classes. Maggie and her teachers have been offering these classes for 10 years at Festival.|
|The lovely (and fellow red head) Lisa L. stopped by!|
|My dear friend Nancy S. (yet another red head!) took time to come see the quilt extravaganza.|
|Me and Jo Packham, founder and creator of "Where Women Create."|
