A quick update

Returned from a wonderful trip to Houston to quilt market.  Weather was absolutely beautiful.  I am not the kind of person who feels comfortable asking designers to pose for photos.  I am much too shy to ask them to spend time they could use to sell products to pay for their market expenses to pose for a photo with me.  SO, I have only one photo that was taken for the Lecien folks that includes me and proves I was there.  That's Lynette Anderson, Darlene of Sew Graceful Quilting, and me.

To see lots of market photos go to The Fat Quarter Shop's blog.  They did a great job of taking lots of photos to give you an idea of what everything looked like. 

The quilt festival quilts are always hung while market is going on so I got to see the quilts.  Oh my goodness!  What a feast for the eyes.  The winners are not announced until after quilt market so it's always fun to try to guess what beauties will be chosen as winners.  Sharon Schamber's quilt "Mystique" took Best of Show.  

Nancy Kerns' "Mary Simon Rediscovered" took the Founder's Award.

Why not grab yourself a cup of something warm and go over to The International Quilt Association website and view all the winners.  I can almost guarantee you'll be inspired!
