My travel companion Shauna and I spent 10 days in the US attending the International Quilt Market at Houston.  The Market commences with 3 days of the wholesale market (we missed the School House sessions prior to this, as these commence before the actual date of the market itself).  Then there is a 2 day break, before the retail market.  These photos include some of the day tours we did on our time off as well as street scenes, and different aspects of the Market.  I haven't put my own quilt photos in here.  Later maybe!  Meanwhile, here is a link below to the winners on the official website
