festival trades

my mom and i recently got back from the international quilt festival in houston.  we had a great time…!  lots of quilt oogling, vendor perusing and mixed-media class taking.  while i sort through which of the 300+ photographs i took of the quilts to show you , here are images of the atc’s i traded for:

i’m very pleased with my “trades” as each one spoke to me… other than maddy, who i was able to meet and exchange cards with personally, i have no idea who grabbed the other ones i stuck on the wall… maybe they will contact me, maybe they won’t – it’s all part of the fun.

stay tuned for future posts on the quilts featured at festival, and to see what mom and i produced in our mixed-media class…

  1. those are beautiful cards. I love that the “jewels of the sea” card is by a ten year old. Very precocious.

  2. Adena Joseph is my daughter. I got to your website looking for hers. This is incredible. She has a website now. I will get the name and send it.
