I have many photos of quilts from the Houston Quilt Festival to share with you but I'm going to start with the quilts and people I most wanted to see!
The Australian Quilting Exhibit, sponsored by Quiltmania
Phebe by Di Ford
Since I'd just finished my version of Phebe in spring, I most definitely wanted to see it!
Rotherfield Greys by Di Ford
I'm attracted to medallion quilts so this is another quilt I'd like to make.
Antique Wedding Samper by Di Ford
I've made 5 blocks but am having difficulty finding the right fabrics. I spent a lot of time studying this quilt.
the Morrell Quilt by Di Ford
I'm not sure I've spelled Morrell correctly but this quilt is on my "Someday" list.
Drayton Hall by Di Ford
Ann's Legacy by Di Ford
Oh dear, Mrs. Tompkins! aka The Burnt Quilt by Di Ford
Jane Austen Quilt by Di Ford
I'd like to learn more about Broderie Perse so I made sure to watch the demonstration Michelle Yeo (left) and Di Ford (right) did. Unfortunately, I had to leave early to catch the bus back to our hotel.
On Saturday afternoon, I attended the lecture, "Three Addicted Aussie Quilters", given by Carolyn Konig, Di Ford and Michelle Yeo (l-r) and enjoyed hearing about how they approach quilting.
Stars upon Stars by Michelle Yeo
California Star by Michelle Yeo
19th Century Folk Art by Carolyn Konig

Indiana Rising Sun by Michelle Yeo
and if you've stayed with me so far ...
my friend and a member of our quilt guild, Jan Hutchison collaborating with Gail Stepanek, won the Pfaff Master Award for Machine Artistry for their quilt, Stars on Mars!
It was an exciting and fun time at the quilt festival but now I'm trying to play catch up on everything I should have been doing at home. I'll be back with another installment of photos soon.
Until next time, Mayleen
