    This is how I like quilts displayed. I don't like them draped over chairs or tables because you can't see the entire quilt. These are gorgeous....and so are the houses! I love that first house with the curved porch. Architecture from another, gentler age -- beautiful!

    Yes, we've had this for three years now. It usually falls the weekend after the International Quilt Show in Houston. It was started by a few merchants that wanted to showcase something different. Some quilts are for sale, but most are made by local quilters or made by family members. It's fun when the weather cooperates like it did this past weekend.
