Road to California


I was able to attend the "Road To California" quilt show yesterday with my two friends, Joy and Karen. I could have sworn I took more pictures but according to my camera, I only took a few. This is why I won't invest in a fancy, smansy camera. I never seem to get any pictures. I guess I was too busy looking and drooling.

I did manage to get a picture of the Dear Jane quilts that were hanging. One was traditional and the other was in 1930's reproductions. Yummmmmy!!! Now I know I will have to hand quilt mine when I am done. I guess I had better learn how. No rush at the rate I am going. LOL!


I am not sure what attracts me to this quilt but I was mesmerized by it.


Of course I fell in love with the gold and red "Nearly Insane" quilt.

I also fell in love with this teapot quilt. There were so many people hovered around it that i didn't get any full size pictures. It was amazing!
Can you believe that is all I have???? I know Joy and Karen took a ton of pictures so when they put them on their blogs I will post a link.

What did I buy? Well, I was a good girl and restrained myself and only bought 3 patterns. :)

Here is what I created this past week...........
Month 3 of "Baltimore Bunnies" in wool & 2 Christmas Ornaments. I also squared up all of the "Berry Picking Party" blocks and made 11 of the pieced blocks. I am hoping to start putting it together next weekend.
Have a great week everyone! Be safe! Be healthy!

I'm the same way when I go places. I get so caught up in what I'm looking at I don't take pictures and then I'm so sorry when I get home. The ornaments are just beautiful and the bunny is the cutest!!

How fun to go to a big show like that. I loved the Nearly Insane quilt. I would say you were very restrained in your shopping to come home with so little.

The teapot quilt was in Houston too and I loved it! Especially the "real" teabags.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful quilts. The tea quilt is gorgeous. One day I hope to go to "Road to California". I have a few freinds who go every year and take advantage of the awesome classes. Love the bunny block and your ornaments are so pretty.

Joy said...

I'm still hyperventilating from all the yummy quilts we saw.... Sigh!

Your ornaments are So Cute! I love the bunny block too.

I'm all inspired from the show now... Hope to sneak up to my sewing room this afternoon!

Wonderful quilts from the show and as always, I love your projects!

Barb said...

Just love the pictures...those Dear Janes are fabulous.

Robin said...

How cool! I especially love the 30s Jane. I'm definitely going to hand quilt mine. I'm even signed up for 2 different classes next month to learn how-- a little hand quilting immersion! :P

Looks like it was a great show.

The bunny is cute and the ornaments are fabulous!
