This first quilt is called "Hope" and was made by Darcia Berg of Joliet, Illinois. All around the inner border is written in script a verse by Oliver Wendell Holmes ( if I remember correctly). It took my breath away!
This next quilt was made by Emily Pousa( I may have her name spelled wrong as I was writing quickly) of St. Charles, Illinois. It is called "Tulip Queen of Night". This quilt was probably queen size and the location where it was placed as you came around the corner, it hit you right in the eye.
The quilt above is called "Whose woods are these?" by Jane Kennedy. I wonder if she was thinking about Robert Frost's poem when she made this. It is really lovely, calming. The moon was appliqued and the rays coming off it were fibers.
This last quilt is called "They Popped Again" made by Louise Schotz of Irma, WI. I just love the ferns interwoven with the Poppies.
Well, hope everyone enjoyed the tour!! If you ever get a chance to go to Houston, do it. The pictures really don't do these quilts justice. The workmanship is exquisite.
I won't be posting to my blog as often. Work is consuming me ( we have a BIGGG trial coming up and I'm buried) and the holiday season is upon us. What little time I have will be used for shopping and hopefully QUILTING. I hope to post every couple of weeks with my own personal quilting progress and pictures instead of everyone else's. LOL . Until the next posting, QUILT TIL YOU WILT, LADIES~
