Here are some of the glorious quilts from Road to California.

This first photo is one of the many quilts on display in the Superior Threads booth. I wanted to get a shot of the complete quilt but there were just too many people in the booth. This closeup shows what a gorgeous quilt it is. I love the lime green, chartreuse and yellow color scheme.

This quilt is called Josephine's Star and was made from hand-dyed damask sheets. Incredible, isn't it?

Silken Defiance, made of silk, ultraseude and yarn. This quilt was not only incredibly beautiful and well made but the these two colors together were stunning. The green was almost a bright avocado while the red was a bit more muted in comparison.

You can see silver ribbons running through the corners of some of the photos. The quilts were "roped off" to keep the viewing public a certain distance away from the quilts, but in some cases it was impossible to photograph the quilt without the ribbon. I liked this quilt in one of the vendors booths, not only for the simple pattern, but I thought the color choices were wonderful.

This was also a quilt in one of the booths, which I loved because of the way it was displayed as well as the glorious Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Again, a very simple pattern, but stunning because of the use of colorful fabrics.

More to come....
