The Eye of the Quilter- Houston

One of the features of the Houston International Quilt Festival is a photographic exhibit called "The Eye of the Quilter" which shows how quilters look at the world. Many of us use our photos in our quilts or make quilts inspired by our photos. Last year the exhibit theme was 'Reflections' and I submitted a photo of a zebra in a water hole which was accepted into the exhibit. This year the theme was 'Friendship' and I sent a photo I took in Tanzania last year when a Maasai herdsman took my husband by the hand to inspect his herd of animals. I just got word that it will be in this year's exhibit in Houston. Neither of these images has led to quilts yet, but I might need to consider the possibility!
