This exhibit at the quilt show in Houston was entitled “Yoko Saito Through the Years, My Quilt Journey”. Her quilts are absolutely stunning and her workmanship is exceptional. I hope you enjoy these photos! I’ll have a few more photos of her quilts tomorrow :)

Sue Spargo had her own exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Her work is amazing and so inspiring. It was fun to see her work “through the years”. I visited her booth a couple of times and she signed her new book for me! I love her stuff!

There was a silent auction at the Houston Quilt Festival of miniature quilts, made by teachers and quilt artists, to benefit the International Quilt Association. I was so tempted to bid on some, as I have in the past, but the process to bid this year was a bit overwhelming. You had to fill out a two page form and leave your credit card information. Hmmm.... maybe not. I hope the auction went well for them. I did not bid, but here are some photos of a few that I really like!

I have been working on the deer block this month for my Woodland Whimsy block of the month and I finished it last night! I just love how these blocks come to life as I work on them. Once again, I'm pretty happy with those bees :) I really like the colorful flowers at the top too - those are appliquéd with cotton fabric.
Here are three of my favorite quilts from the judged quilt show in Houston. This one reminds me of my granddaughter! Cute little pigtails, same sense of style :), combing her Daddy's hair before he goes to work.
Scene from an Ordinary Life

I've been trying to learn Spanish on Duolingo so I knew comer is eat and dormir is sleep and repetir is repeat. I did not know what coser meant .... duh! SEW!
It's called The Recipe of Happiness
by Anna Orduna Pons from Spain
SEW, EAT, SLEEP, REPEAT
Sounds like happiness to me!
Doesn't this quilt just look good enough to eat??
Contraste de Sabores
by Montserrat Forcadell Blasco, also from Spain
I have been out Christmas shopping this afternoon! Yes, the mall is already decorated for Christmas :)
