I thought I'd do a bit of back tracking today and share the first sight a lot of people see when attending the market and festival. At the crosswalk from the Hilton Hotel this is your first view of the George R. Brown Convention Centre in Houston.We arrived on Friday evening and by the time we got checked into the hotel and walked down to the convention centre it was after 6 and the show closed at 7 so we walked around so I could orientate Rita to a few of the sights.
Inside on the second floor there are some porthole windows you can look down onto the merchant's market. There were 20 aisle of vendors, a lot to see. This year I was very very good and limited my spending.
Over to the left you can see a white wall, beyond that is the food fair along with some open studios.
A lot of the vendors would not allow pictures but this quilt caught my eye because at first glance I thought the applique star was a maple leaf similar to the Canadian Flag.
Here is the link for the show quilt.
Check out the quilt details here. Nick and the boys were at the show this year instead of Lisa and the girls.
More quilts to share tomorrow. Enjoy your day.
