No Photographs Please!

I can understand that sign on some of the quilts in the show.
I can even understand it in SOME booths.
In fact there were a couple I felt like I should tell the owner they should have that sign!!!
(but I didn't)
But those... okay.... THAT booth.... that a l w a y s is covered in signs that say
DO NOT TOUCH,
NO PHOTOGRAPHS, NO SKETCHING....
I mean "Seriously?"
I keep meaning to google and see if they have a web site up.... it must be text only and HOW inspiring is that?
okay.... I feel better....
Here are some shots.... random order.... just like if you were with me... I didn't take any of the dining area though...
Can you guess whose booth the above was?
That was just to show you it really is International....
I always love the wool stuff..... this year I gave into it....
I love the junk tables, too!
Thought I'd throw in some quilts....
I could wear this one below!
Isn't it cooooool!
Last year Quilt Festival was earlier.... it was in October... which was so great!
You can go to November 2008 and 2007
to see those years' Quilt Festival posts.

The gals below made my blog last year, too.
It's a mom and her two daughters.
Their headgear last year was only slightly different.

Then we leave.... we walk across the street to the hotel where we parked...

That's Minute Maid Park at the end of the street!

(where the Houston Astros play baseball)

The Convention Center looks like a giant ship, doesn't it!

....and we walk on this beautiful carpet each year in the hotel.....

The end of International Quilt Festival....

until next year!

I hate when they say "no photographs" or touching or breathing or anything else. But looks like you got a lot anyway!

Lovely things -- sounds like your kind of time -- mine, too!
