We had lunch out on the 2nd level patio on Saturday afternoon (Gerry, Cindy, and Charlotte).

Jim Shore was one of 3 celebrities I saw at the show (the other 2 being Eleanor Burns and Alex Anderson). Here he is autographing the Mickey figurine that Cindy bought.

Cindy and Gerry’s names were drawn in Make It University’s lottery for a Saturday afternoon class.

There were a lot of quilts with faces. Aren’t the colors on this one lovely? It’s called “Lipstick Sunset” by Betty New.

“Just Sing…Sing a Song” by Tom Russell is just so cute!

Bert Garino is “Quilting in Perfect Harmony”.

I believe the name of this quilt is “Puzzled”. This is the artist, Ruth Bloomfield, who is from Australia. The quilt is made from “fabric confetti”…a very cool technique, that I don’t think I have the patience to attempt! It was very neat to be able to hear some of the artists talking about their works.

A ribbon-winning miniature, “Quilters Utopia: Where Fabric Grows on Trees” by Sharon Schlotzhauer, had a teeny-weeny little quilt on it.

Twelve square inches! Mission: Impossible2 by Kumiko Frydl has a 128-point compass!

Judy Coates Perez created a beautiful “Moon Garden” with just one splash of color.

This group quilt from Japan is called “My Quilt Room” (Yasuko Ito and Oharibako). My favorite part is the little Japanese slippers used as sashing between some of the blocks! Sorry it’s a little blurry.

Claudia Pfeil had 55,000 (yes, you read that right!) crystals on “Fire and Ice”.

And, we ended our time in Houston with a stop in front of Minute Maid Park to check out the trainload of pumpkins!
