MORE WONDERFUL QUILTS!

Here are some more quilts from the International Festival of Quilts in Houston, TX.  I just wish I had taken my better camera, but at least you can get a pretty good idea of some of the quilts that I liked best.  There were so many and my battery ran down.  In fact my phone went totally dead.  Lesson learned - bring better camera.

Log Cabin Quilt - hand quilted.

Friends of Baltimore - Amazing!!
 

Texas Gold - one of my favorites!
 The description of these next two quilts was too blurry to read unfortunately, so I don't know their names.

This was intriguing - the fabric was folded in each square to make roses.




Milady - another of my favorites!


My First Trip to Baltimore


Nite Owl


This quilt won an award

This quilt was all pieced with what looked like 1/2" pieces!!

Placemat quilt which was part of a special exhibit.

Another award winning quilt


Gorgeous!!


It would have taken days to really study all the quilts to see how they were made, etc. and I only had a few hours, but it was a wonderful few  hours!  I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of the festival.

Can you imagine having to judge that show?!! I know every time I go and look at all those absolutely fantastic quilts, I think to myself "why do I even bother"!! HA But I don't know how you could pick winners there.

The quilts are fantastic. Sometimes I just like to stand and stare at them. I try hard not to do any drooling at the shows though. LOL
Thanks for sharing.
