Everyone's "Houston" is different: if you look around on Facebook or the blogs and see the quilts that people are posting, it is obvious that we each see such different things!
I'm just going to post pictures...I'm a little overwhelmed, still, to do anything else!
And here is the embellished quilt that won the category.
The Second Place winner in the Mixed Techniques category is by Masa Yamagimoto. It is called "Pray for the Land of Green".
Another traditional quilt that I loved was actually a one patch, so simple but so effective.
And not all the quilts I saw and loved were in the exhibit. There was also an amazing one in Julie Silber's booth, The Quilt Complex.
So there you have it, my eccentric selections, winnowed from hundreds!
If you love quilts, if you can, go to the big Festival in Houston at least once....
