Slice of Southern California

Here is a photo of my "Sand Sea Sky" quilt, which is part of the "Slice of Southern California" special exhibit by Quilts on the Wall. I took the photo at Road to California, so it's not the best. The exhibit looked great! I stenciled a rather snarky quote on the sky - it was the only quote I could find that had to do with both Southern California and the ocean. It goes something like, "There's nothing wrong with Southern California that a rise in the ocean level wouldn't cure." The author of the quote escapes me at the moment. The truth is, I am a native Southern Californian and love it here.

Road to California, etc.

I noticed that many of my recent posts don't talk about my quilts. It's misleading, because I'm still making quilts like crazy! But I can't show them here, because I'm entering them in shows, or I don't have a good photo, or the dog ate my homework, etc., etc. I'll try to have photos to share soon.

Hey, I have two quilts at Road to California, going on now in Ontario! They're both in special exhibits. My latest quilt, "Fan Club," is in the Noble Elements: Air or Wind exhibit.I hear that it can be found in the mid-section of the show, 527. The other one is part of Quilts on the Wall's Slice of Southern California exhibit. I am anxious to see it, because I need to photograph it. Also, I forget what I called it. :-) It can be found in the smaller ballroom all across the back wall.

I am going to Road on Saturday afternoon. I can't wait!

photos of book signing

My friend Catherine put some photos of the book signing at Soft Expressions on her blog. As an experiment, I am seeing if I can transfer one of her photos to my blog. It worked, as you can see!

To see the rest of the photos on Catherine's blog, go to:
