International Quilt Festival Houston 2019 is this week! Market is going on this weekend. I arrive mid-week and I can't wait to go. It's like waiting for Christmas, but even better! The Quilt Show posted this picture this morning and I couldn't be more excited! My quilt is hanging in the Sapphire Exhibit celebrating IQA's 45th show.
My quilt is in the forth column, bottom quilt. Below is a closer picture. I must admit I made this quilt with the hope and dream of it being hung for this exhibit. I remember the Ruby exhibit 5 years ago and remember thinking that next time I needed to have a quilt in the exhibit. My mom has one too, though it isn't in this picture.
This quilt is called Whirligig and you can read more about it's creation here. The fabric is all Island Batik. It's called the Indigo Morris collection. I had a blast creating a modern looking quilt. I knew there would be lots of traditional quilt entered, so I decided to go a different route on purpose. I am really pleased with the results and I can't wait to be in Houston and see it in person!
Be prepared for lots of Houston pictures later this week! I can't wait!
I hope you get to quilt today!
