Houston International Quilt Festival -- a Few Quilts I Really Liked

There were five hundred-plus quilts hanging at the Houston International Quilt Festival.  Several hundred in the judged show and the rest in the special exhibits.  I wandered around with my camera and these were a few of the quilts that caught my eye.  Just a few.....

Wonderful collection! I love the vibrant coloured ones, and am in awe of Ms. Pabst's work. I saw an interview clip of her with Ricky Tims on the TQS blog. Wow!
