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.

  4. Wow! These are some truly amazing quilts!! I just came upon your site and wanted to say hello. I'm not a quilter, but I sew window treatments and have a blog about all things DIY for our homes. It's wonderful to find others who sew, isn't it? I'm off to see some more wonderful things you have here. BTW, I love your blog name, and yes, bolts of fabric take up so much room, they are everywhere! :-)
    Blessings,
