Here are more quilts we enjoyed, and other things we did while in the Houston area:
You may have seen this one in a magazine. It was part of the "Textile Architecture" exhibit, as was the one above (City at the Bottom of the Sky). That exhibit was a nice one with many very creative quilts.
This was another cool exhibit - of moon quilts.
One of our friends had done research into the top twenty restaurants in Houston. She had a list, and each time we were on the hunt for eats, we checked her list and tried to find one that was relatively close to us. One night we tried hard to find a particular one, but couldn't get it show up on GPS. Finally we were attempting to find another one and seemed a little lost, when all of a sudden we looked to the left, and there was the first restaurant that we had not found in GPS! Turns out it had been spelled wrong in the GPS attempt. It looks quite humble but is in fact very delicious. Luckily for us, their largest crowds appear at lunch time, and we were there for dinner. We had the place almost to ourselves, so the staff gave us a tour of the barbecue pit. This is the oldest pit in Houston, built in 1935. They've got it down to a science now, cooking their meat on a wood fire, starting first near the fire and then moving it further away as it cooks. Food was delicious, and the special treatment we received made it even more fun. Pecan pie for dessert - my favorite!
