International Quilt Festival / Houston
Online Registration is OPEN
Who is going to Quilt Festival in Houston in October?
I am, I am....actually I will be there for International Quilt Market which is the weekend before but the last day of Market is ALSO the FIRST day of Quilt Festival classes.
So I've sent in my registration form for a class on Monday. Hope I get in. It's a class with an instructor whose work I greatly admire and I've always wanted to be in a class with her. I'll keep you posted!
|Pancakes, bacon and syrup - yummy way to start the day!|
|Ready and waiting for the parade - flags courtesy of the local Cadets.|
|Local firefighters dressed 'in drag' and carrying WATER PACKS - a fun water fight between rival firefighters starts the festivities - one block is set aside as the 'water zone' in case you don't want to get wet!|
|Myosotis - from the Greek 'mouses' ears'|
You could win this basket of goodies!
I recommend Visual Coloring by Joen Wolfrom
On your MARK, get SET, GO!
|Siberian Iris - the plant behind them is a Smoke Bush - interesting combination of colours and textures.|
