Behind the Scenes at Fall Quilt Market 2008

Multimedia message, originally uploaded by Colorful Quilter.

I’m in Houston, TX this week and I’ll be giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the giant trade show to the quilting trade: Fall Quilt Market.  From this show come the new fabrics, books, patterns, and designers you’ll be seeing in your quilt shop in 2009.  And you’ll hear about them here first!

All the commotion starts tomorrow, so today I hit three art museums in Houston’s Museum District:  the Lawndale, the Center for Contemporary Craft, and the phenomenal Museum of Fine Art.  It was there that I actually gasped when I turned corner after corner to see artists whose works I had seen scattered throughout different museums and exhibitions, but never together in one place:  Monet, Matisse, Renoir, Van Gogh, Botecelli, Munch, Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden, Carrie Mae Weems, Mary Cassett, Georgia O’Keefe, William de Kooning,  and the list goes on.  It was terrific and a great way to start this trip:  inspired by the best.

In the photo above I’m in the neon underground tunnel connecting the two buildings that make up the MFA. Truly, if you are ever in Houston, this is a must see!

    There are definitely plenty of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to convey up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up where the most important thing will probably be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Each girls and boys feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

    Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require a lot of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    A los cinco minutos terminó el asunto y pude ver como desfilaban las fieles hacia la calle mirándome con cara de pocos amigos…el Padre Fortea había tenido algún encontronazo con la prensa (creo que con Antena 3) por el asunto de los exorcismos y había acudido a un plató de televisión, dijo, engañado porque pensó que se iba a hablar de su trabajo pero se encontró con algo diferente que no le gustó nada.

    Both groups lost weight, but no statistically notable differences were seen between both groups in terms of weight loss and reductions in body fat mass.
