QUILT SHOW WINNERS A GALLERY OF ARTWORK
Think of the International Quilt Festival, which continues Saturday and Sunday at the George R. Brown Convention Center, as a different kind of art show.
Its quiltmakers use large canvases of cotton and silk, with techniques done by hand or on machine, sometimes with embellishments of paint or even crystals. The finished products dazzle.
The main halls of the convention center are filled with more than 1,700 quilts in a variety of exhibits. Perhaps the most special exhibit of all is the collection of prize-winning quilts. Here are the top winners from the quilt festival, considered the premiere quilt show in the world.
