Texas Quilt Shows & Events

Texas has an extensive quilting history, and is bound with a wealth of opportunities to discover its quilting heritage. Explore the many quilt shows, shop hops, and exhibitions Texas has to offer. Also, be sure to visit the many art galleries and museums throughout the state.

Texas Museums have many ongoing exhibits


January 15 - May 15, 2016 - CALL FOR ENTRIES
Primitive and folk-art quilts exhibit at the 2016 Fall International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. We are calling for the best of primitive quilts - featuring all techniques from hand-pieced and quilted to machine-done. Our Special Exhibit will showcase two categories: 1. Created from your own Original Design, and 2. Those created from a published pattern. It is our hope to spread awareness of primitive quilting, and give overdue recognition to the many gifted primitive artisans in the quilting world.
