I have spent the past four days at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas, having a marvelous time. The full set of 288 Twelve by Twelve quilts have been on exhibit, and nine out of the twelve of us were able to attend and meet each other. Before I fly home tomorrow, I thought I'd post a few pictures to give you a taste of the excitement.
The adventure was made possible by Del Thomas and the Thomas Contemporary Quilt Collection, and I can't begin to express how grateful we are to Del for supporting our exhibit.
The exhibit looked beautiful and our quilts glowed like jewels.
We sold and signed lots of books.
We posed for a lot of photos ...
And felt like rock stars with paparazzi shooting our pictures.
We dined and celebrated the fun of being together (complete with cardboard faces of the three Twelves who couldn'tbe in Houston) and seeing our project accepted and appreciated so enthusiastically.
Now we are headed back to our respective homes, full of appreciation for how far we have come together and the surprising enormity of what we have created.
