Catching up

Posted on: December 18, 2011

I have taken a bit of a break from sewing. I need to get back to it as I have 2 projects near completion that are for other people, so they DO have to be finished in a somewhat timely manner. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have some quilt pictures for you. Though it’s almost 2 months past, here are a few of our favorite quilts from the 2011 Houston International Quilt Festival. I dragged my boyfriend along with me…though, he said he was interested to see what this “quilt stuff” was all about. And, I think he was surprised at the art. We did discover that his tastes lean more toward the traditional than mine, but there were still quite a few that we agreed on.

This 3-dimensional quilt is called “Central Park” and was created by Kathy York of Austin, TX. It was very cool!

“Dandy Lions” is a whimsical quilt by Barbara McKie of Lyme, CT.

There are always a big number of Japanese quilts. This one, “Winter Flower” is by Keiko Maeda.

“Bali Hai” by Marilyn Badger of St. George, UT, was one we both liked.

That’s it for the quilty-ness. Here is some Christmas kitty cuteness, though.

Felicity came to live with us 2 years ago this month. She likes the Christmas tree. Both she and Kiki have been very good. I was afraid they would try to climb the tree, or pull ornaments off, but they haven’t. Yay!

Merry Christmas to you all! See you in 2012.
