Sometimes living in Houston area isn't the greatest thing. It's hot. It's humid. There is smog. Lots and lots of people and not a single one knows how to drive.
The one thing we do get is the International Quilt Festival. It made the 800 days of triple digit heat that we had this summer, well worth it.
This pictures is taken from the 2nd floor and covers from the center to the right. To the right of this section is the exhibits. To the left of this center is the same number of booths. Honestly, this show is crazy. There is nothing that can't be found here. You can catch a few more pictures on my Facebook page.
I ended up sick the day of the show and only stayed a few short hours. I was able to look at some of the beautiful quilts that were on display. Did a little shopping. And, after 6 long years with my base line mechanical beast, I purchased a new computerized machine. Expect another post about that, once the machine arrives.
Next year I hope to be well, to have a hotel room and take two days at the show. And a class or two.
If you're a quilter, consider this Mecca. You need to take a trip at least once in your life time.
