The 2013 Road to California Quilt Conference and Show is going on this week in Ontario, CA. The Preview Party for the show was this evening (Wednesday) and it was amazing. So many beautiful quilts, clothing items and quilted dolls. Everyone was smiling and enjoyed the evening listening to a love orchestra while admiring beautiful quilts.
Here is a little tease of what you can see if you come to Road this year.....
Hoffman California Fabrics sponsored a $1,000 prize for the quilt with the Best Use of Color. This was won by Birgit Schueller, for her quilt "Masquerede". My little camera does not capture the beautiful of this amazing and colorful quilt. Absolutely stunning. Congratulation Birgit!
"Spinner" was designed and made by Marlene Oddie and quilted by Marlene.
I've seen pictures of this quilt on Marlene's blog, but this quilt is absolutely amazing up close. And, congratulations Marlene as this is a juried quilt show, with entries coming from all over the world. Quite an honor to be juried into Road.
Don't forget if you are going to Road to check out my prior post on 2013 Road where you can:
- print coupons for special vendor discounts and fun vendor opportunities
- consider taking a video at Road, or using pictures to create a video, and entering the Road to California Video Challenge where you can win prizes.
And, don't overlook the change to pricing this year. It is only $15 to attend the show and that ticket is good every day of the show. So, if you want to come back and pop in to look at something, or pick up something from a Vendor, it makes it very economical!
Hope to see you at Road!
