Road to California

We realize it's been a few weeks since Road to California took place down south in Ontario, but figured you might be interested in seeing some photos. If you've never been, it is well worth the trip. What road trip that is quilt-centered isn't worth it? A change of scene does a body good.

It was huge, like Pacific International huge. There were almost as many vendors as there were quilts, and it was packed. Your intrepid reporters stayed from about 11 a.m. til it closed at 6 p.m. and had a blast. Funny how I ended up with a cast on my left wrist after the show. It would have come in so handy while fighting our way through the crowds.

You'll see from the photos that I was attracted to bright quilts. Next year I'll be more careful about taking photos of a greater variety of quilts.

A huge round of applause for Linda Schmidt of Dublin, whose waterfall quilt won a third place ribbon. Her work is exquisite in it's detail and use of materials. Congratulations Linda!

Uh oh, time to go. So I'll let these photos tell the rest of the story.

Until next time, as always thanks for your support.

Oh no, what happened! Broken wrist?

Love Linda's work, and of course that piece by Janis is amazing!
