International Quilt Festival – Houston

via TWELVE BY TWELVE by Deborah Boschert on 10/27/11


As you know, the Twelve by Twelve Theme Series and the ColorPlay Series will both be on special exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston! Nine of us are going to be there. We’ll all be spending lots of time in the exhibit area. Remember, most of us haven’t seen the quilts in person — so after four years of studying images on our blog and website, we’re eager to experience the art quilts “in the cloth.” Plus, I know we’ll spend lots of time chatting, laughing and getting to know each other “live and in person.”

So, please stop by and say hello! Let us know you’ve been reading the blog. Tell us which theme is your favorite. Check out the collection of postcards we’ve created from the ColorPlay series. Enjoy the exhibit!

Karen and Diane (and, hopefully, later Brenda) will be at Preview Night on Wednesday, November 2 from 5 to 10 pm.

FYI: Our special exhibit will also be on display during International Quilt Market which runs from October 29 to 31. This is a professional trade show and not is not open to the general public. But, I’ve heard buzz about lots of art quilters and others who will be there. I hope you’ll get a chance to see our quilts.

 See you soon!
