The four of us drove to Houston in my mini van (so we had plenty of room for acquisitions!) last Wednesday and got there in time for the pre-view. Excitement is building:
I borrowed this picture from Stitchin' Heaven Quilt Shop's FB page. This was before the show started. My quilt is on the floor, lower left.
I would love to post pictures of all the quilts I took pictures of, but alas, it's not allowed without acknowledgement to the quilters. Suffice it to say, it was a wonderful show with over 2000 quilts and 1100 vendors. We got to go two whole days in addition to the preview.
My friend Cindy flew in from Reno to go to the show with us. We ALL had a magnificent time!
Here's a reminder: Last April I was in Houston with my husband for a geology convention at this same convention center. I was working on my quilt at the time and jokingly put it in the window of our hotel room and took a picture. It was like my quilt was trying really hard to get in the show. At the time, I had no idea there would even be a red category and never dreamed my quilt would be accepted.
