Still More from Road to California


Last week I posted some of my pictures from this years Road to California Quilt show in Ontario. Here are a few (actually more than a few) more. You can enjoy the previous quilts here and here.

I’ve realized that although I am a traditional quilter, I take a lot of pictures of non-traditional quilts. I’m not sure if that is because I might want to make some, or the fact that here are so few traditional quilts being shown at shows.

I do know that there are incredible artists producing stunning works and that we are blessed by the beauty they add to our lives.

Somehow I missed who produced this quilt. If anyone has the name I will add it to the post.

And last but not least three paper pieced versions of Judy Neimeyer patterns. They almost make me want to paper piece.

More Quilts from the 2014 Road to California Quilt Show

This happy quilt was hanging in the main hallway at the show.

I didn’t think I had captured the name of the quilt or who had made it, but thank goodness for the ability to crop photos. “Jack’s Cabin or Tough Times, Tough Pattern” by Susan Maddox.

However, I definitely didn’t get the information on this quilt. I love snowflakes and these ones in wool have fabulous texture.
