The adventure began at Doublethree hotel after a long trip from Oakland to Phoenix, then Houston, so decided to rest there.
Next day early in the morning a long line of ladies were excited waiting for the bus to get one more day to the quilt festival.
We got the ticket and to ready to begin the experience! In one side there were the big exhibition with the best quilts on diverse categories and on the other the vendors with more than 1,500 booths.
Course I was first to find my little bed and the exhibition of Selvedge magazine. I did not like how they exhibited it but well, it was there anyway, with my name in Houston!
The rest of the little exhibition was, little in a big space but they looked so cute!
This was the Best of show quilt, it was AMAZING so much work on it and very well won!
Lunch time, not so many options for me, a piece of pizza and good chat sharing table with patchwork lovers like me.
A new friend, patchwork artist and Mexican too, she lives in Austin TX. Look at her web site, Martha Tsihlas.
Here I am with one of her marvelous works at the exhibition.
One of my students was there and her sister, we were together looking the exhibition and buying things, so much to see but our feet were complaining!! It was so nice to see you there Laura.
Last day of the show and because all the shops were closed I decided to go back to the festival to get the last orders. Fortunately I found by chance the Selvedge booth, so I got in and a lovely girl gave one issue and took me this picture, next my compatriot Frida Kahlo, I did not see her, ha ha ha. Happy coincidence.
This is my recap of Quilt festival at Houston, it is impossible to transmit the experiences as I lived it, as I felt it, the love, the good vibrations and even the textures of fabric and their odors. I wish I could tell all as I saw and sense, but again it is not possible, I hope one day all of you can live it so. It was a great experience that I know,will happen again in other places with other people, but I wish it will be with one of you in the future.
