Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Houston 3 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

My apologies for missing SQI last weekend. I'm happy to say that I have a few more pictures from quilts at the Houston Quilt Festival. These are from Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) and from "In the American Tradition."

SAQA had a special exhibit entitled "Layered and Stitched: 50 Years of Innovative Art." These are some of my favorite works.


The following quilts are all from the "In the American Tradition" exhibit.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Houston from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

What a week! It really began on Wednesday, in a way. Richard had a doctor's appointment for plantar fasciitis. We were loading the grandies into the truck when Meme accidentally stepped on the hitch that was lying on the floor of the truck. It slipped out onto the top of my foot. I've been in a boot since, mostly to protect the foot while traipsing around at the Houston Quilt Show.


Houston began early the next morning. We arrived an hour late because traffic in Lake Charles was crazy slow. The delay may have been a good thing ...

Bead Embroidery from Completely Blocked

The International Quilt Festival in Houston was amazing, as always. It’s so incredibly inspiring to see all of the quilts and quilt-related pieces that people have made. It was the 40th anniversary of the International Quilt Festival, and as part of the celebration they had a huge collection of red and white quilts on display.

Movie and Pizza from Susie Q Quilts

On a non-sewing note...hubs and I went out for a movie and pizza last night. That is something that never happens. He has ADD so sitting all the way through a movie is like his idea of hell but he did it just for me. We saw Gone Girl and headed over to Palio's Pizza Cafe for a Hawaiian pizza. My bad though. It had cashews on it and we all know how much my brain does not like nuts. No migraine this morning so it was a win all around. The movie was as good as the ...

Little Red Fish from Completely Blocked

I’m going to the International Quilt Festival in Houston again this fall, and I’ve signed up for a couple of classes there. Going through this year’s class listings, I started thinking about the classes I’ve taken there in the past. I have some partly finished projects from those classes, and it seems like a good idea to dig those out and finish them. I have a bad habit of bringing things home from classes and putting them away, adding them to the stack of UFOs hidden in the closet.

This one is from two years ago ...
