Houston Quilt Market

Standard

I just returned from the Houston Quilt Market. There is always an energy in the air. New fabrics, gadgets, old friends and new friends being made.

Me by the 'Sarajevo Rose' quilt, Houston 2010

My friend Renelda Peldunas Harter has a quilt, ‘Sarajevo Rose’ in the ‘Text on Textiles’ exhibit. The text tells of the damage to the streets and walkways made by the mortars (bombs) during the war in Bosnia. If persons were killed by a mortar the crater is filled with a red dyed cement thus giving the crater the look of a rose. Sadly there are too many of these roses.

A sad subject but a nice quilt to honor those involved. Quilts have always been a way for the quilt maker to express emotions or thoughts.

More fun stuff in the next entries.
