'Dancing Lilies' by Caryl Schuetz, from the special exhibit "In Full Bloom V: Floral Quilts in Memory of Helen Pearce O'Bryant."

‘Dancing Lilies’ is just one of the many magnificent quilts on display at this year’s Houston International Quilt Festival. The events will take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida De Las Americas, Houston, Texas 77010, USA (www.houstonconventionctr.com).

October 30 through November 2, 2008 are the scheduled dates for this year’s Festival with a Preview Night on October 29 from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. The class catalog is available online at www.quilts.com. There is an amazing list of classes available for every skill level. You will want to arrive early as some classes begin on October 27.

I have had the distinct pleasure of representing CQMagOnline at the past three Festivals. It is an amazing show and without doubt the largest event of this type in the world. You will want to begin scheduling classes and arranging accommodations now. Classes fill early, as do most hotels and motels.
