George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston Texas

QF2006.size.jpg

Immediately after arriving home from London, I unpacked, repacked, and flew off to Houston Texas for the International Quilt Festival.  I started quilting in 1980 and attended my first Houston Quilt Festival in 1983.  It was relatively small and held at the old, wonderful Shamrock Hilton Hotel.  Since then it has changed venues several times and continued to expand.  This was the 23rd year that I attended and it now fills the entire Houston Convention Center - all 5 parts.  I sketched this view of just one of the 5 parts from my 10th floor room at the Hilton Americas.  The building always reminds me of the Pompidou Museum in Paris.

Wow, you are one busy lady! You have captured the depth of this view so wonderfully.

I admire your ability to really capture a building in just a few lines. I really enjoyed the London journal as well - it's loaded with atmosphere.
