Next Week - Road to California!

If it's January, it's time for Road to California! 

Pietra Dura

Road to California, the pre-eminent quilt Showcase in the Western us is next week! January 18-21st at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California.

I'll be there from Wednesday through Saturday afternoon enjoying the quilts, being a student, doing some shopping and meeting friends.  I'll be taking two classes - one with longtime friend Esterita Austin and another from contemporary quilter Cindy Grisdela. Two of my quilts have been juried into the Showcase - Pieta Dura (above) and Swan Song (below). Click on the images for more information on these quilts.

Swan Song

Two other pieces "Stairway to Heaven" and "Heian Shrine Garden" are featured in the Southern California Council Of Quilt Guilds exhibit "Emerging Light" curated by Stephania Bommarito.

Stairway to Heaven

Heian Shrine Garden

Before returning home on Saturday afternoon I'll be in the Cherrywood Van Gogh Exhibit on the show floor from 1-2 pm signing the exhibition catalogs, meeting some of the other artists and answering questions about the work. If you're at Road, come by to say hello!  The 2018 Challenge is spectacular!
