What a great conference. I was pleased to be part of the teaching faculty at the annual Road to California (affectionately known as “Road” to those who’ve been there, would like to be there, or have heard of it!) quilt show in Ontario, California.
I taught two classes, Blended Borders and Putting on the Glitz….both were two day classes. My students were enthusiastic, energetic and there to learn and have a great time. I enjoyed both of the classes thoroughly.
Everyone worked hard….and fearlessly jumped into new ideas and techniques. Everyone did fabulous work….here are a few examples of quilts from the Putting on the Glitz class..
One of my favorite things about a great show like this is the vendors……It’s a great opportunity for quilters to see all kinds of irresistible goodies that they don’t have the opportunity to see at home. My particular weakness (…OK, I have more than one of them but I’m only talking about one of them now!) is specialty hand-dyed or hand painted fabrics and this show had some great ones. They’ll be wonderful additions to my art quilts.
And most importantly…everyone seemed to be having a great time. By the way….who ever said you can’t talk on the phone and make great quilts at the same time? Obviously it’s very possible……!
