Back from Houston

I arrived home from Houston last night and as usual had an exhilarating, exhausting time.... so many fabulous quilts to see. Here I am shamelessly proud of my quilt in the Town and Country special exhibit. You can see more of the exhibit here. I didn't win one of the two top prizes (those quilts were amazing!) but I was pleased with the way it looked, hanging nice and flat under those bright lights.
It is all pieced, using my hand dyed fabrics and lots of free-motion quilting.

Another detail. Sorry for the fuzziness.

I'm not posting any pictures of other quilts, knowing that some people will object. You can see all the prize winners here. Click on the Ruby slippers.

I have a little more to post about my Japan trip, maybe tomorrow. Then I'll have to get to work making something new.

Hi Nomra! I loved this quilt in the show. I remember meeting you (in your pretty burn't orange quilted jacket). Cathy was great about introducing me to lots of great people.
