Hello everyone I am back from the Houston Quilt Show. Had a blast but the trip was to short. I only went for one day on a tour bus. Next time I am going to spend a few days.

On Thursday I ate lunch with Patrice and her friend Peggy.
I shoped till I dropped. My shoulders are aching from carrying around so much. I needed a couple of thousand bucks to buy all I wanted.

It is worth going. Maybe next year we need to plan for many of us from the board to go and meet there for a few days!!!!

Well took many pics og beautiful quilts will post later . Will show you through links a fes things I bought.

I got to meet Judie Rothermel who designs Civil War fabric and Aunt Gracies for Marcos Bros. I even took a pic w/ her and she signed 2 books I bought.

Centinnel Sampler and Reproduction Civil war quilts (books) and her Aunt Gracie bundel for Christmas

What I bought and an very excited about is this applique kit . I was impressed the lady demoed it. You can make a stem that is 1/8 in wide and also small circle the size of a hole punch piece of paper.

Was this an international festival? The one in Long Beach, CA was phenomenal! It was absolutely huge, and I never did get through all the vendors! Glad you had a good time--looking forward to seeing your pics!
