Art Quilts -- some of my favorites from Houston Quilt Festival 2010

In no particular order of preference (actually, they turned out to be alphabetical by title), here are just a few of the pictures I took at the Houston International Quilt Festival in November.  There were so many more, but many of the shots didn't turn out well enough to post.

Oh my gosh, in looking back at all these pictures, I'm reminded once again of what a wealth of talent we have in the art-quilt world.  In the process of cropping, straightening, and light-correcting all these pictures, I've been inspired all over again.

I've tried to give proper attribution to the artists, but if you see an error, misspelling, or just don't want your quilt showcased here, please just let me know and I will immediately delete it.
