Every year I have the pleasure of visiting the show in Houston with APQS. For those of you who don’t know, this event is one of the largest quilting shows in the world. There are hundreds of breathtaking quilts on display, and I look forward to this week all year. At the next guild meeting I’ll give an overview of the quilts from Houston. We’ll of course spend some time ohhing and ahhing over beauties like Jerry Granata’s Fly Me to the Moon (pictured), but we’ll also focus on some of the trends I noticed popping up in the longarm world.

Don’t forget to bring your latest quilts for show and tell and an unfinished top for the “How would you quilt this” segment to get input from others on how to tackle a top.

If you’re quilting for others, feel free to bring along a stack of business cards to leave in the shop!
