quilt festival

Now that I'm in Houston, it's very easy for me to go to the International Quilt Festival, which just finished up last weekend. There were so many beautiful quilts in the show.

Jack by Sandy Curran
This quilt of Jack Nicholson cracked me up - it looks JUST like him!

Wind by Masanobu Miyama

And I'm in love with this quilt. It felt like you could reach out and pet this dog.

Together in a Friendship World by Geta Grama and Quilt.RO Group
