Inspirational Sunday (3) - via Road to California 2015

Welcome to another Inspirational Sunday courtesy of the Road to California quilt show for 2015.

I'm continuing with special exhibits today.  The next several quilts were part of an exhibit highlighting many of the wonderful State Parks we have in the US.


This one depicts Antelope Valley California State Poppy Reserve by Dorinda Goff.

Mid-February through May acres and acres of California poppies bloom just outside of Lancaster.  Dorinda's quilt focused on the poppies.  They are quite lovely, aren't they?

This next one depicts Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park by Barbara Blake.

Pigeon Park is located on the California Coast about 50 miles south of San Francisco.

This one is for Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park by Linda Molter.

Bale Grist Mill is 3 miles north of St. Helena, CA.  Built in 1846, and restored in 1925, this water-powered grist mill was operated by the Bale family in the late 1800's.


This lovely quilt depicts the Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park by Kimberley R. Heaps.

I can tell you that there is nothing quite like walking through a redwood forest, and it is difficult to capture its beauty,even on film.  Kimberley did a fantastic job though!

This one shows Tomales Bay State Park by Julie Harris.

Julie decided to focus on the tranquility of the park's picnic area.  Tomales Bay State Park is located about 40 miles north of San Francisco.

This last one depicts a park a little closer to my home.  It is Malibu Lagoon State Beach by Karen Griffith.

I love how simple this quilt is with the strips of color.  Lovely!


That's it for this week.  I hope you return again next week for another installment from the Road to California quilt show.


Thanks for reading today,

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Sometimes I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
