Day Two–Wisconsin To Houston International Quilt Festival

It was another long day on the bus today – but – we made it to our final destination!  IMG_4133

At the beginning of the trip my little guys decided we should work on some teeny tiny hexagons (1/2”).

Our fun stop was at Pinwheel Quilt Shop in Arkansas.  My trio found a fun little home to snuggle in while I found some fabric.

Unfortunately, it was rainy out while we were at the shop.  There was an amazing old building just down from the shop and it was worth getting drizzled on to snag a few pictures.

If you look inside the windows you can see some old sewing machines.  I am in love!

The Texas Welcome station was really fun – props for photo’s!  Here are my little guys … and here …

We stopped at CC’s Smokehouse for dinner and I had a wonderful cowboy steak that was recommended by the locals – delicious!

And just after 9pm, we arrived at our hotel and now we can make ourselves at home for the next three nights.

I miss my family like crazy – but I’m super excited to see the shows and make some connections with some great quilters!  Tomorrow we are scheduled to visit two quilt shops and then head to the preview night to see all the quilts – can’t wait!
