Quilted Yurt: A Smash Hit at Festival

Greetings!  I'm STILL trying to sort out photos from the Houston Quilt Festival.  I have been looking forward to posting photos of the amazing quilted yurt, submitted by Linzi Upton, of Aberdeenshire, United Kingdom.  As you can imagine, this was a very unusual and fun installation in the Tactile Architecture exhibit at festival.  Check it out:

  1. I'm still wondering how I missed the Yurt! I think I always stopped at the SAQA and Rituals exhibits and got "stuck" so I never made it any further. The yurt is really beautiful! I'm glad I am getting to visit it through your photos and Linzi's post!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
