International Quilt Festival!

November was quite the busy month. It started off with a trip to Houston to the International Quilt Festival!!! Woot, woot!!! Marsha, Sandra, and I had a FANTASTIC time! I learned to bring all my papers with me after having to trek back to the hotel but Hey! Live and learn! I even won the FASCINATOR contest! I won a Sizzex machine and other lovely things. It was a blast!

There were sooooo many vendors and so much to see and do. We did take some time to go thru the different quilt exhibits also. The amazing talent that is in this world is unbelievable. Paint quilts, Photo, Traditional, name it, they are making it in QUILTS! The only limit is your imagination Here are a few of the quilts we saw:

I loved this series. The detail was amazing. Note the fishnet stockings! I just loved this.

 This is Marsha enjoying herself. This quilt was fabulous!

I was nuts over this CRAZY quilt! It was from Australia and the detail and colors are fantastic.
