International Quilt Festival – Houston 2012, Part 2


I took many photos of the marvelous quilts at International Quilt Festival 2012  – Houston last week, and will be sharing them with you in batches this week. Some are ribbon winners, and others are not, but these are the ones I loved best … and it is a big honor to just get a quilt into this show. This year, generous sponsors gave prizes totaling more than $90,000. Enjoy!
