Default International Quilt Festival Houston Excitement!

Quilt Festival is just one week out. I've been getting excited about it all week. My only reservation is driving down on Friday. There's so much traffic because of all the workers from downtown. I only attend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Saturday and Sunday are no problem. It's 20-30 minutes door to door. Today I got an email from my Quilt Guild (Tri County Quilt Guild) that they are chartering a bus for Friday! Woohoo! It only costs $1 and is leaving from a church 5 miles from my house! What a deal! Now I'm super excited!

Is anyone else attending Quilt Fest in Houston this year?

Rules require masks so I'll be wearing one. Other than that it will be one of my wearable art jackets and pants and, of course, comfy shoes. A must.

I've gone to Houston Quilt Festival every year (except of course 2020) since the mid 90's. I just love all the amazing quilts and wonderful vendors. I meet the nicest people at Quilt Festival.

I had planned on going but too many other plans have gotten in the way. Have fun! It's an amazing show that every quilter should try to go to at least once.

I totally agree! I'm blessed to live here. The quilts are so amazing and I tend to find exactly the fabrics I"m looking for. There's just so much to see!
