I'm back from Houston, exhausted but exhilarated. What a wonderful four days. I was the first Twelve there, and this is what I saw when I walked into the exhibit hall. We had an inside area with the Theme Quilts, and an outside area with the Colorplay.
Brenda arrived a few hours later and it was so wonderful greeting an old friend for the first time. This is a picture of our display area.
We were so fortunate to have Del Thomas as our sponsor for the exhibit. She made this dream come true, and we owe her a huge debt of gratitude. I wish she could have been there to see it in person. The comments we received ranged from "You changed my life" to "I don't get it"!
The exhibit area was never empty, and we all had fun talking to the viewers, explaining our project, basking in the compliments.
We were all sad Françoise, Helen and Kirsty couldn't make it, but they were there in spirit, and Gerrie printed out photos of them so we could take them with us to all the celebrations.
What a wonderful memory this week was. I was able to meet Kirstin, Nikki, Deborah, Brenda and Terri in person, so I have now met eleven of the Twelves. From our display table I could look over and see my other quilt in the show, Spinal Study 1, which was in the Dinner At Eight exhibit. That quilt sold at
Long Beach show, so I won't be seeing it again
