Thelma and Louise - Saga II
I have to admit that I have been procrastinating doing this post because it seemed so daunting and that is because the Houston Quilt show was so daunting! Wow...is that place BIG!! I thought Paducah was big but you can probably multiply this place by TEN.
Here's a selfie with my sister-in-law and myself with a "portion" of the vendors behind us.
Here's a couple more views.
These pictures don't even show where the quilt display even started.

This one had 80,000 pieces! Yes, you read that right. This quilter has to have had a lot of patience.

I could go on forever, but I just loved how this elderly lady was stitched. Just look closely at her arms. This quilt was amazing.
I have so many more pictures. Just believe me that this show was fabulous and if you ever get the chance to go, it was well worth it.
You will be taking lots of "rest periods" though. There is a lot of walking in big crowds.
Well worth it though.
Hope you enjoyed the "small" number of quilts that I have shared with you.
My next post will be a little bit more about our Thelma and Louise adventure.

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
