Quilt Festival

These are not the best pictures in the world, but I wanted to give you an idea of the size of Quilt Festival.  The convention center is HUGE and it is crowded with quilters!   I took these pictures from the second floor through the big round red framed windows that look down on the convention floor.   I was shooting through the glass of the window, so there is an issue with reflections, but I think you can get an idea of the size and crowds.  The first picture is of the food area.  This was Thursday afternoon at about 1:30PM and there are very few seats available.  What you don't see are the huge lines of people waiting to order.   Trust me the lines were long, I just did not take a picture of them.

The next picture is of one of the rows of the vendor mall.  It does not look as crowded as it feels when you are down there.

Want to see what the rest of the floor looked like?  Well the next picture is what is to the right of the 2nd pictures.

It is kind of hard to see, but there is a beige wall at the far end.  All the beautiful show quilts are on the other side of that wall.

If you get a chance you should go to Houston.  The classes were awesome, the vendor mall was terrific and there is not a adjective that is good enough to describe the quilts!  

Hope to see you there next year!
