Houston IQF - Part 3
This is part of the SAQA booth and the display of the 12" square quilts donated by members for its fund-raising auction. The starting price is $750, and the price declines over the course of the show down to $75. This is the first year that SAQA has expanded its online auction and selected 100+ quilts to be sold in Houston.
My Jet Trails #12 quilt was in the group of quilts that went to Houston, and I'm happy to say that it was purchased there.
It was fun to run into Aafke who lives in Ithaca and who also had quilts in the show. She met us at the Show & Tell event and showed us this lovely piece of fabric she bought.
This photo was taken on the walkway between the convention center and the Hilton Hotel, and it gives you some perspective on how large the convention center is.
This photo is from the 3rd floor of the convention center. The tents you can see out in the park were for a Korean Festival that was also going on.
This is a piece of hand-dyed fabric that Priscilla bought.
