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.
This one brings tears to my eyes.
River of Quilts was a special exhibit of Quilted Images of the Sacramento River by the Redding Quilters’ Sew-ciety. Here are three of the images:
Harlan D. Miller Memorial Bridge by Patti Aberg
Sundial Bridge by Gladys Smith
Shasta Dam by Carla Ferrier
Hope by Sandy Curran
This is the first of a new series. I will definitely be watching in the future for others.
The next two, both by David Taylor have incredible realism.
Alsea Highlands Falcon by Karen L. Donobedian
And last but not least three paper pieced versions of Judy Neimeyer patterns. They almost make me want to paper piece.
I wonder what these artist are working on now.
