IQA Quilt: A World of Beauty Preview: Whimsical

One of the fun things I get to do in Houston each year is present the awards to the winners of the Whimsical category in the quilt show because Quiltmaker sponsors this category. The presentations are held Tuesday night. When I have a  little spare time from being on the Market floor, I always make sure that I’ve seen the Whimsical category–I hope to have time to see the whole show before the awards ceremony.

I thought I’d share my first brief glimpse on Saturday afternoon of the Whimsical quilts. I hope to get back soon to see more details in this category and to see the remaining quilts–such inspiration!

10/12/09 Update: Today I discovered that I missed a whole section of whimsical quilts–10 more of them.  I got pictures and I’ll add them to the post as soon as I get a chance to edit them.
