Road 2 California 2009 - A Few Quilts to Share


My sister and I went to the Road 2 California quilt show in Ontario, CA over the weekend, and we enjoy going each year. We walked around and looked at everything for six hours, and boy did our feet hurt at the end of the day. Jodi is a quilter and I like to make scrap collage quilties.



There were so many beautiful quilts on display, but I thought I would share the pictures I took of the more unusual ones that we saw. You can see more of the quilts here.


We had such a great day, and we look forward to going together again next year.



The quilt photos below have their information placards next to their picture.

This first quilt, "Grape Harvest", won the Best of Show.

















These dolls were adorable!


































































































































































The photo below on the left is Bonnie from B J Designs. She creates beautiful clothing from vintage textiles such as the jacket she is wearing in the photo below. She is located in Austin, TX but her card doesn't have a website to share with you. I always look for her booth when I attend the Ontario Quilt show. I like to look through her remnants for vintage pieces I can use in my quilties. She has a nice selection with reasonable prices. I found five pieces this year that are shown below with Bonnie's photo. I should have fun with these pretty pieces of fabric.

Wow! These are so totally NOT our grandmother's quilts, are they? They're such beautiful works of art - I'd never thought of quilting as a means of painting with fabric instead of paint, but that's completely how they look. Wow... Thanks for sharing these photos, Pallas! :)
