I spent one full day at Quilt Market in Houston. I spent a little more than an hour looking at all of the quilts (which was not nearly long enough), I signed books in the C&T booth, and then I walked all of the 26 aisles looking for wonderful new things for the web site. It was full but exciting day!
The quilts in the show, and in the special exhibits, were phenomenal. Honestly it was hard to take it all in in the short time I had. I did stop to take photos of a few of the quilts that spoke to me. I was drawn to quilts featuring portraits and people in particular.
I only took photos where permitted. The quilts below are followed by the information from the artists.
Claire, below, was hanging in the judged show.
I’ve seen the next quilt before and I still love it!
I’ll post more images from the show tomorrow.
