The quilt show in Houston was huge and has quite a different flavor than the Dallas show ( which is my only other reference). I took pics of the winning quilts, except the main winner - it just did not photograph well on my camera.
Here are the two $10k winners:
This one is a tad blurry - sorry...
Here is a good close-up of my favorite parts - the Wisteria & the Tulips
The next few are just quilts I liked & when I grow up, I just want to get a couple quilts done - I have no aspirations to get as good as this.
This quilt - if I remember correctly was done with little tiny pieces of fabric which were covered with mylar & then quilted directly onto the back fabric. It was very intricate.
Sorry about the plastic tape running right through the middle - I guess it is the drool barrier. All I have got to say about this one : cool dragon!
Notice the drool barrier again....
My last picture for this post was a fabulous store with all kinds of ribbon, lace, buttons & beads. I spent quite a bit of time in here, oohing & aaahing over all the pretties, but did not buy anything because I just sorted my stash & am overwhelmed with guilt....
Have a great week.
