International Quilt Festival, Houston 2012

The International Quilt Festival 2012 in Houston, Texas, produced by Quilters Inc runs from 1st - 4th November. The awards have been announced in the judged quilt competition at the festival, The International Quilt Association's Quilts: A World of Beauty

Photographs (copyright) of each winning quilt are now available to view on line. As you would expect of an international judged competition, the standard is outstanding,

Local readers will be interested to see that a number of Australian quilters have won awards and commendations. While most of the winners are US residents, there were also many winners from Japan, a few from Europe, and one from New Zealand.
Immediately before the Festivals opens to the public, Quilters Inc run International Quilt Market, a trade-only event showcasing new products in/for the quilting industry.  Berrima Patchwork staff attend regularly to source new stock, and have just posted a short video from last weekend's event. If you are curious for further information, a Google search on 'International Quilt Market' will find many blog posts by those attending.
