Fall Quilt Market – More Quilts

Here are more of the quilts that caught my eye in the exhibitions area of Fall Quilt Market in Houston.

There were several unique quilts that had openwork sections.  It was fascinating to study them to try and figure out how they were constructed.

My Best Friend by Nancy Hutchison Scrappy pineapple blocks, created ith fabrics from her late husband's favorite shirts.  Quilting served as therapy following his sudden death.  The backing is an expensive Dallas Cowboy fabric she'd been saving.

And there were many quilts that made you smile. The What’s for Dinner? exhibit proved that quilters also had a passion for food, along with their passion for fabric.  Each art quilt was an enlarged place setting, complete with place setting, silverware, plate and food.
