Are you going to the IQF in Houston?

Every year one of my favorite experiences is the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I missed it a lot when it was cancelled in 2020, and I was delighted to hear that it was back for 2021.

Unfortunately, this summer when it came time to make a decision about whether Quilts Beyond Borders would participate this year, the Delta variant of the pandemic seemed to be in full swing, particularly in Texas. After a lot of discussion between the team members we made the hard decision not to have a booth this year.

We’ll miss the fun, and we’ll definitely miss seeing all of you who typically stop by to pick up kits and drop off tops and quilts. If you have completed quilts and tops you were planning to bring to us at the show, please send us an email at and tell us where you live. We’ll let you know the name and address of your nearest Regional Coordinator so you can mail them or arrange to meet.

Great thanks to all of you who make the beautiful quilts we give to needy children and orphans. If you go to the IQF, stay safe and enjoy the show and the many wonderful classes that will be taught. We’ll see you next year!


Carla – Quilts Beyond Borders President
