It's been a while, I know! I finally uploaded my pictures from the 2013 Road to California Show and am ready to share! I didn't take as many photos as I should have, but I figure we will have some fun for a month or so, at least.
I might as well start with the "Best in Show". This one is called "Red Feathers" by Claudia Clark Myers of St. George, UT. It was quilted by Marilyn Badger. It was paper-pieced and machine appliqued. The design came about by asking, "Why can't you have feathers on a Mariner's Compass".
There were always throngs of people around this quilt. I can't believe I didn't get a detail shot. All those gold swirls in the border are actually machine quilted there using the fabric's design as a guide. Some of the freehand feathers in the quilting extend into the border too, which was kind of neat to see.
What questions do you ask yourself that spark ideas for your quilts?
Thanks for stopping by,
