Houston Quilt Pics 2

The following quilts are all from various exhibits that were on display at the Houston International Quilt Festival.  These are only a very small sampling of the hundreds of quilts that are on exhibit at the Houston Convention Center.  In addition to the varied exhibits, there is also the International Quilt Association's competition which includes the many categories where quilts compete for thousands of dollars.
The first several quilts shown below are by art quilter Caryl Bryer Fallert.  These are part of a travelling exhibit titled "30 Quilts for 30 Years" which celebrates 30 years of Caryl's art quilts. 

A quilt from another exhibit:
 "Cutting Down the Tall Poppies" by Helen Godden of Latham, Australia

A quilt from another exhibit:
 "Simply Santa Fe" by Cindy Seitz-Krug of Bakersfield, California.  This quilt is machine quilted with a domestic home sewing machine.

Next, these quilts are from the exhibit "An Exquisite Moment."
 "The Hummingbird" by Sue Bleiweiss of Upton, Massachussetts
 "XXOO" by Gerrie Congdon of Portland, Oregon
 "The Visitor" by Susan King of Houston, Texas
 "Fear of Flying" by Judy Coates Perez of Sacramento, California
The dog quilts below were from the exhibit "Festival Awareness Project:  It's Raining Cats and Dogs."
 "Best Friend" by Barbara Yates Beasley of Boulder, Colorado.
"My Blue Heeler 'Rosie'" by Laura Krasinski of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
Please keep checking back, there are still lots more quilts to show!


  1. Thanks for more Show and Tell. I missed several of those in there.

    1. I know, it's tough to see them all, there are so many!

  2. Thanks for the close ups on the Poppies quilt. I love the jigsaw puzzle and turning gears quilting. I have not seen those fillers before! Awesome!

    1. Yes, Helen Godden's quilting is really beautiful and very original. Glad you enjoyed it.
