October Quilt Show Preparations

Autumn is here.... the air is finally cooling and what little color we get here in Texas is beginning to appear. 
October means it's time for the International Quilt Show in Houston! YESSSSSS!!!

I have been looking forward to it since last years ended & I plan to treasure every moment of it! 
It is my first time having a quilt on display! 
I even sent in a star block for the NASA quilts collective and a head shot for the faces of quilters display!

I lucked out on workshops (although I was so worried about not getting any of my first picks that I am way overbooked). Last year I promised myself I would leave more free time to wander and shop.
OK, so I did not quite achieve that... but I did leave Friday morning free... There are simply too many fun things to experience and so little time.

I am looking forward to participating in the following workshops:

COLLAGE CONFETTI HORSE with LAURA HEINE

MY TEXTURED GARDEN with CECILE WHATMAN
 
RENEGADE THREAD PLAY with MELINDA BULA 

THREAD TOPPINGS with MELODY CRUST

DAISY DELIGHT—MANIPULATED MAGIC with JENNIE RAYMENT

THREAD STORIES with JENNIFER DAY

DYE PAINTED SILK SCARVES with HEATHER THOMAS

All are full day workshops except thread toppings, daisy delight & silk scarves. And ALL have quite the supply lists!

So while I hope to complete the binding on my dotty quilt this month, my primary goal for the month of October is to be prepared

To GATHER, To ASSEMBLE & To ORGANIZE all the needed supplies for all those workshops, so I can just grab "that days home assembled kit" and head from our hotel to the workshop. 

Houston... Here we come!
