Another International Quilt Festival has come and gone

It has taken me about a week and a half to recover from the last month and a half of travels and teaching, so I’ve been a bit slow to get back to blogging since I got home.

I  have quite a few photos from my time in Houston, so I’m going to write several posts to get them all in and then I will get back to posting about my Australia trip.

What a week it was, starting with a VERY early flight to Denver and another to Houston. I miss that relatively short direct flight from Chicago I used to have.

My daughter Indigo and I arrived to a rainy and cool Houston late Sunday afternoon in time to get my teaching packet from the education office and a 60 yard bolt of white fabric I pre-shipped to start tearing up for all my classes.

At the beginning of the week I taught Color Theory and 10 Techniques with Acrylic Inks.


You never know who’s going to show up in your classes. This week Susan Bruebaker Knapp‘s friendly face popped up twice; first in Acrylic inks and then in Tsukineko inks.

I think the Acrylic inks class has become one of my favorites to teach, since we work in so many different ways and all kinds of interesting experimental work gets produced.

Besides having friends show up in classes, it’s wonderful seeing good friends on the show floor and other events at festival.
