Houston Quilt Festival 2023 Recap

It's Christina here for this week's post. Can you believe it is Thanksgiving week? Where has this year flown? I hope everyone is spending time with family and loved ones this week and celebrating this year's blessings.

Houston Quilt Festival Inspirations

This week is a recap of the Houston Quilt Festival from a few weeks ago. It has been a few years since I have been so I am very grateful to attend both Market and Festival this year. (Check out our blog post from a few weeks ago to see our Market Recap.) I felt like Festival was smaller than some years ago but still very big and present. Walking the floor, shopping, and seeing all the wonderful quilts is such a treat. My favorites are always the Cherrywood Fabric's Challenge. This year the theme was Monarch.

Next year's challenge is "Poppy". To get more information check out Cherrywood Fabric's website here.

We also saw some amazing animal quilts.

And stunning flower quilts.

We saw the amazing "My Australia", a 22 foot long piece that was made during a 6 month period of Covid lockdown.

I ran into some friends from Athens, GA and saw Rosie's quilt hanging in the show.

We were able to see our friend Tammy Caple of Sew Feathered Quilts that she longarmed for JoAnne Lammert. I took a few pictures to send to her.

We got to talk some more with Laura from Slice of Pi Quilts. We learned about her "My Very First Quilt kits". They come with everything to make a quilt including a quilt label with the child's name on it. Check out her website here to learn more.

We also made some new friends, ran into some other friends, and even more stunning quilts. This is just a few of them. We plan on attending next year. We would love to see if you are attending.

Till next week.
