Those sixteen patch snowballs on red are finished and on their way. Isn't it funny how you can get just so far and stop? I had this one finished except for the binding all week and only got the binding on last night. No excuse at all, just didn't do it. (Of course I may have started another quilt or two instead of doing that.)
This sweet little couple is the backing fabric.
You know I like red, and I really like this quilt. Matter of fact I like every quilt I've ever made. Mr. Muddling and I both want to keep every one of them. However, we give them away. At least most of them..
Mr. Muddling and I took a quick trip to Quilt Festival today so that I could see the quilts that I missed when my friend and I were there on Thursday. This colorful one is called "Umbrellas in the City" by Terry Krysan and Page Johnson of Lakeville, Minnesota.
This one just made me smile. My favorite car of all time was a little red beetle a lot like this one. This quilt is called "Vamanos" by Judith Putnam of Paris, Tennessee.
This one is called, "Japanese Tea Garden" by Mary Ann Hildebrand
of Comfort, Texas. This sunken garden is still in existence in San Antonio. Construction began on it in 1910. Isn't this a beautiful portrayal of it?
I am continually amazed and inspired by the unlimited talent and skill of so many quilters around the world. And by the way, I think most countries were represented there in one way or another. We talked to a lady from Russiea on Thursday who was here in the states visiting her daughter in San Antonio. They had come to Houston for the quilt show.
I hope you've enjoyed these few extra glimpses of the wonder that is Houston Quilt Festival!
Hugs and kisses,
