Road to California

Yesterday I had a chance to go to 'Road' with my friend Rose. I didn't do too much damage.
I bought:
- 2 sets (16) of fat-eighths of Batik; one light and one dark. I bought some of these last year and just wanted to get the deal again.
- 2 sets of (25) fat-eights; one of solids and the other of Kaffe Fassett prints. It seemed like a good way to get several of his prints without spending too much money.
- 1 set of (60) 5" squares of vintage chrome, cheddar & purple prints. I'm gonna make a hourglass quilt with these.
- 1 pattern, Faded Glory, see it here:

Here's a few of the pictures I took of quilts in the show.

I really like this one. It's called 'American Woman'.
Isn't it cool?

This one reminds me of when Ray & I were in Monterey.
Probably cuz it's the Big Sur Coast. 

Very dramatic.
I love the work in this, but would never get one done. 

Here's a huge hexagon quilt. Wow! 

A red 'Jane' quilt. 

Like this one with all the birds. 


This one is called 'A View From Above'.
Looks like she used lots of scraps. 

The vendor's mall had so many things. After buying several Molas in Columbia & Costa Rica these shoes caught my eye. Fun, but I didn't even ask the price - I knew it would be too much!

We had fun checking out the quilts and vendors. It was fun to see someone we know on almost every isle.

Today I stayed home and sewed. It looks like rain is coming for the weekend so I may get more sewing in before the sun comes back.


  1. Beautiful that Red & White Jane. The pattern you bought is sweet....I like the wagon with the fireworks in it!

  2. I love the Big Sur and animal quilts, gorgeous!
