5 Reasons to Be Here


Bird on a Branch #1 by Laura Wasilowski.

There are 5 reasons I hike it down to Houston every year to attend the International Quilt Festival.

  1. I get to eat BBQ and drink a beer, just one, every night.
  2. I meet lots of entertaining people at the Artfabrik booth who tell me wild stories about their life and make my life look stale.
  3. The quilt exhibits are outstanding!
  4. I have 2 quilts in the juried show that I made for love, not money. (That means I didn’t win any prizes.)
  5. And most importantly, I’m with my peeps. Being with quilters and sharing our favorite fabric pass time is the best time of the year!

See Bird on a Branch #1 at the Artfabrik booth (#1739) and tell me an entertaining story.

    • Thank you! The Blanket Stitch on the leaf is done with my BERNINA 750 QE. Great machine for Blanket Stitching. The Blanket Stitch on the bird is done by hand.

  1. I’ll have to settle on seeing you in Paducah. Next year I will be in Houston. I love that show!
    Hopefully, I won’t have any wild stories to tell you. I like my life stale.
