Time to go...and very overwhelmed

 Its time to leave Houston, and all these beautiful amazing quilts.  This was one of my favorite ones in the show and is a Malaysian child, I believe. Truely amazing artistry.
 The applique on this quilt was unbelievable, as were so many others. 
This is a the Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses, quilt that I recently purchased the pattern and english paper piecing pieces to make. It was great to see one made up, and oh so made me want to get started on mine.  I am thinking of using shirtings for the background and a red for the little squares in the sashing...but we will see. It will look quite different from this one which had a lovely soft color palette.

I did get to meet Gail Pan and have a picture somewhere.  She is delightful person, very friendly and easy to talk with. What a treat to get to meet her.

I also got one last picture of my quilt with people standing all around taking pictures, but I can't seem to find that one either.  I think they did not all transfer from my ipad to my computer. 

So many pictures I could share with you (I took around 350) and so many things I could tell you about all the quilts and techniques I saw and learned.  I listened to quite a few demos and learned some new techniques.  Its been a wonderful experience and one I hope I can do again sometime in the next few years.

Thanks for stopping by,
