    These areso beautiful, when the hexagons came down, I thought they were the prettiest, then the land scapes, now I think they must have all been beautiful. I hope toget to go one year!

    I went too. It was fantastic and the quilts were amazing. I really blew my budget with the vendors but got some great fabric and ideas. I have a question though. I bought a charm pack of flannel squares that are perfect for a quick baby quilt. But how do I wash them without them getting out of shape? I've never worked with charm squares before. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I went to the Atlanta Quilt show about 3 weeks ago and was just breathless seeing these quilts up close. They were sent in from Germany, Australia, Alaska, and other far away places. Someone here said there should be a different name for what these art quilts are and what we usually make. I agree. I think these are "Fine Art" quilts.

    Always sharing !
    I enjoy the quilt shows because I can't go to them very often. So its my inspiration ! Love the last photo of the country scene(plaids for the barn roofs-excellent idea) and enlarged tulips at the bottom.


    Happy Quilting !
    That was one of my favorites too. So many inspiring quilts.

    I would not wash charm squares. Just make your quilt, then gently wash before gifting.

    You really took great pictures! I took a bunch and then accidentally deleted almost all of them. I was so upset but your photos have really helped! Thank you so much for sharing them. I hope if you have more that you will post them also!

    I won a door prize!!

    Had a great time at the Houston Quilt Festival and what made it especially nice is I won a door prize All 60 colors of LuminArte's Silks acrylic glaze from the Dreaming in Color booth... over $400 worth. The colors are luscious and shimmery. They can be used on just about any surface, including fabric. These pictures don't do the paints any justice.
