Quilts at Houston Quilt Market

Quilt Market in Houston finished yesterday and wow what an amazing experience that has been. As everyone has said it is just so big.

Day One was Schoolhouse and this is a day full of 20 - 30 minute presentations.
You can only get your book listing all the sessions about an hour before the day starts, so 
there is then some frantic reading and choosing. which session you will go to. They go all day and I did a session in every 30 minute time slot from 10.30am until 6.00pm, It was
incredible so much to take in - I hope my notes make sense!

There is just so much to tell you, but I will start with the Red and White Quilts display 
in the exhibition as that was the first thing you see as you walk in the door.

This is the stunning display of red and white quits was inspired by the "2011 Infinite Variety:
Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts: that hung in New York. In the photo below you can see how high they are hanging - look a the lady viewing them, This whole display makes such a dramatic centre-point of the Exhibition area..

Now for some quilts closer up.

 Sorry this photo is a bit wobbly as the quilt was catching the breeze - it is made with jsut squares,

There was even a  red and white Dear Jane Quilt.

And closer up.

And walls of miniatures.

Back soon with more Market photos.
