Quilt Market in Houston 2017

I have just returned home from both Quilt Market and Festival in Houston

The gathering of friends: Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Kathy York, me and Leslie Tucker Jenison




Helping Leslie Tucker Jenison set up her display in the RJR Fabrics booth to promote her new line ‘Urban Garden’




Coming together as Leslie puts the final touches on the artwork with maker tags



My wall Quilt ‘Gardening Gals’ surrounded by Deborah Boschert’s bugs are just too fun! 


Succulents made with her line and surrounded with moss give the look of a vertical garden



She had a great variety of objects made with her line and not just quilts! 




The booth display for RJR Fabrics made by Linda Fitch and Vanessa Stevens. The buildings are made with the new lines that were introduced at Fall Market. So clever! 



The traffic was insane around our hotel with Quilt Market and baseball fans at the World Series. Captain America was there on his bike cab! 









Loved this line of sewing machines by EverSewn that were being sold in the Brewer booth. The Sparrow 25 was very impressive and affordable. It would be a terrific machine for classes and for me just to have as an extra machine in my studio. 




Another fab product - the Laura Star steam iron. You can put tap water in the tank and it has its own water filter. It can press four layers of fabric at a time! If I used a steam iron, I would buy this one. 



At our annual eyeglass appointment in Houston. I had sent to pairs of glasses to get new lenses with my new prescription and was quite delighted to get my favorite glasses back. Glasses are my jewelry! Always such a fun part of our trip. Insight Optical on Sunset in Houston. Ask for Susan Chumchal who is a stylist. She is amazing. I have been buying my glasses here for years.
