International Quilt Festival 2009, Vol. 1

Four days wasn’t enough to do all we wanted, but we had a wonderful time and came back creatively charged!

This was the 35th year of the festival and the fourth or fifth time I’ve attended. It is billed as the largest quilt show in the world. We met people from Norway, Australia, and Japan, attending as quilt shop owners, avid quilters, or vendors of supplies, antique quilts, clothing, and jewelry.

These articles from the Houston Chronicle give an overview:
