Hello! For today's inspirational post I thought I would dive right into some of the special exhibits at Road to California, because they are my favorite to look at.
First up, the Wicked Cherrywood Challenge.
In this challenge, the participants had to complete a 20 x 20 mini quilt, with the theme from the Wicked musical, oh, and a very limited color palette (using Cherrywood fabric).
The results are dramatic!
And I love how different they all are!
The next group of quilts are just a couple from the "Celebrate the Day with Quilts" exhibit. In this exhibit 53 artists came up with 72 quilts that interpret some "special days" that might make it onto your calendar.
This quilt is called "National Tooth Fairy Day" by Bunnie Jordan.
Who wouldn't want to celebrate losing a tooth by getting a quilt like this?
I only snapped a few of these as the crowd was thick on the day I went to the show.
This one is called "DNA Day" by Renelda Peldunas-Harter.
I learned that April 25th is a significant day in the history of DNA discoveries, and here I just thought it was a few days after tax day.
This one is called "Nerd Pride Day" by Kathy Lincoln.
So the next time May 25th rolls around, make sure to hug the nerd to your right and left. I just love the pocket protector included in the quilt!
Thanks for reading today,
