Any blog discussion of Fall Quilt Market this year will almost certainly include photos of this intriguing art installation located in the park across the street from the Houston convention center.

Sadly, I was so busy during our visit, I didn't get a chance to learn more about the two pieces or even to stop and properly admire them. They appear to be little rooms made of quilt-like colorful ceramic tiles.

I don't know if they're part of a permanent exhibit, but I think they're a wonderful improvement over the dusty construction site that occupied the space last October.

Since returning home a few days ago, I've been sleeping and eating to make up for the lack of both I've done for the past few months. There's been a lot happening, and it's nice to be back.

You can see the two new spring patterns we debuted at Quilt Market at the Oliver + S blog.

I'll write more soon.


  1. That is so fab! I saw it on NotCot a few weeks back and was intrigued! Lucky you!

  2. oh i am just sick that i was unable to make it to the show this weekend. i live an hour or so north of houston and was planning to attend. i would have dropped anything to have had a chance to meet you. however i hope your stay was lovely and perhaps tx will be blessed by another visit from you soon

    Of course I have the obligatory awesome quilted rectangle buildings on my blog! I loved that you knew you'd see these shots everywhere.

    They are permanent, and best of all, they are stairs to the underground parking garages. It took me 2 days to find the time to properly examine them. They are beautiful entrance to a potentially dreary space. Love it.
