WOW! What a week!

Quilt Market has finished, and we are in full swing for the International Quilt Festival Houston!  Festival was kicked off with the awards ceremony on Tuesday night, and look what happened??


Mr. Swirl E. Bones, by myself and quilted by Shelly Pagliai, Won 3rd place in the Innovative Pieced Category!
We are thrilled! Winning anything at Houston Festival is a huge honor, and we thank the IQA org. and judges, and Tin Lizzie for sponsoring our category!

I also have a quilt in a special Exhibit called, "Patterns" for the Dinner@8 Artists.  
This is my quilt, "Coarse Woven"... this was a fun quilt to make, incorporating as many layers as I could visually, by using my Manor Stripe fabric, (which looks really cool cut up and re assembled as well!)  This quilt is 40" x 40", machine and hand quilted.

It's been an amazing  9 days here, so far.  A couple more days to go! 

Coming to Quilt Festival, You can stop by to say hi to me at these booths and times:

Friday: Sizzix booth 118  10-12
Saturday Sizzix booth 118    10-12
Saturday JUKI Booth, 1052      1-3pm
