Quilt Festival Inspiration

Though I haven’t done any quilting in a long time, the international Quilt Festival in Houston, TX is not to be missed. Between the Vendor Hall and the Quilt exhibits, it is difficult to see it all in one day. My legs are still tired 24 hours later while my brain is imaging all those delicious pattern and color combinations. This year I didn’t buy any fabric, but did buy a jacket pattern to use with some of my handwoven fabric in the future. Other purchases included: novelty threads to weave not sew with, Zippers for handbags, beads for weaving accents, and Dye and synthrapol from PRO Chemical and Dye. After tackling the Vendor Hall I spent time wandering the quilt displays.These are a few of my favorites.
