Road to California Quilt Show

 Last Thursday  went to the Road to California Quilt Show with my sister...it was really crowded...but nice. I took a ton of pictures, but I wanted to show you some of the quilts that I liked a lot...some for no particular reason...other than they were really pretty or unique...this one reminded me of an old painting....
 I loved the bright colors in this one...
 Baby birds...what can I say...too sweet!
 This guy reminded me of the scrub jays that visit my yard every day...
 I just thought this one was so pretty...
 The gal that made this one designed it after an oil painting...it looked like it to me!
 I think this one might just be my favorite...I felt like I could reach out and touch that old sign....
 If you've spent any time in San Francisco...this one was very life like...all that fog turns everything gray!
 This one was just incredible...it had needlepoint...cross stitch and embroidery all worked in there...amazing...
 Here's a close up of one of the blocks...
And another closeup...although now that I look at that one it's a bit blurry...It didn't say how long she worked on this but it had to be a very long time...there was so much going on!

So that's all the pictures for today...I hope you enjoyed them...I will post some more tomorrow....
If you didn't sign up for my Valentine give away...make sure you go back to my last post and enter...the drawing goes until January 28...Good Luck every one!!

Until next time...enjoy the day!!!

Wow is an understatement. I've seen some quilts on other blogs, but your choices...the quilt with the sign, such dimension, how did she do that. The crazy quilt is a favorite also since I love embellishment. All amazing in their different styles.
