Yup...Still in Houston

Imagine my surprise as I strolled through the quilts.....

I went to admire this stunning face of a man only to be shocked by the 'angel' manning this exhibit!!


It was none other than our Charlene!!!

I forgot she had volunteered to be angel
( I won't go where this COULD go!)

Today's class was Log cabin pineapples by Flavin Glover 


It was on another Janome but this one was a lot better machine 


She gave us two options to make pineapples with the same strips 


I used some fabric I didn't care if I chopped up


I would love to do this in batiks and make the tumbling blocks 
 


 My partner made it in these beautiful colours 



 The luncheon today was with Pam Holland on Planting seeds of creativity

 We also heard a talk on how hard it is to quilt in weightlessness in space by astronaut, Karen Nyberg

She said you don't lose needles though. They just hang there 


As usual the lunch was fabulous 


The table cloth was a large piece of Moda which I won for our table!!
 

W were joined by the Oxbow, Sk girls...

Trudi and Sandy
 

I stopped in to admire another Sedona Star quilt maker
 

When look who stopped in....


 Ricky Tims!!!

 We had a chuckle about how this free pattern in 2012 cost me 300$ when I printed it at staples in 2015!!

There were some great quilts again this year 


Some of my favourites



 


 

These were part of the Lion King Cherrywood Challenge
 

They were 24" square and there were so many fabulous ones
 

It was hard to pick just on as a favorite 
 

There is also a Dear Jane exhibit which I want to do a quilt one day

I happen to be in the right place at the right time when this one was presented to the owner of Moda 


The designers all made a quilt from their fabrics incorporating the hearts in the design 


 One day left in Houston.

I think I have been pretty good.

My acquisitions should fit in my luggage. 

Better do one more sweep of the show tomorrow...

In case I forgot something....

Christa
