I'm on my way to Houston, to be reunited with two of my quilts which are being exhibited at the International Quilt Festival 2014.
My small quilt, Not Half Bad, is part of the What's for Dinner? exhibit.
My quilt, It's Not the House, is part of the Festival Gallery of Quilt Art. This year's theme is Home.

This quilt came out of a family discussion. My husband said one night, fussing, "Sometimes living in this house..." and my son immediately said, "It's not the house, it's the people!"
The "bricks" that make up the outside have words on them that describe each of us, and are color coded to match each interior profile. The doors can be secured open or closed using jewelry magnets that are sewn on in strategic places.
I'm so excited to be in Houston! It is fabulous to see my quilt hanging here.
I'll be doing a three minute video about It's Not the House on Saturday for Quilt Alliance, in which I'll tell about how I got my design idea, and the process by which I made the quilt.
