Road to California Quilt Show

First, I'd like to thank all of you who contacted me after my last post.  Mom is continuing to grow stronger and we are very hopeful we receive good news this week.  I will keep you posted.

I did receive some good news of a much different type this past week.  On a whim, I entered a quilt into the Road to California quilt show.  I almost fell out of my chair when I received notification my quilt, Warm Hearts, was accepted into the show.  It's a juried show so just getting to show a quilt is an honor as far as I'm concerned. 

While preparing my quilt for shipment I began a nostalgic trip down memory lane.  This quilt was made and offered as a block of the month through Rabbit's Lair.  That made me think about all the quilts I've made and offered as blocks of the month through various shops.  I thought it might be fun to share some with you.

Rabbits Prefer Chocolate (I don't have the quilt I made but it was similiar to this photo of the pattern)

Christmas Memories

Baskets, Berries and Leaves - This is a large quilt and I don't have a photo of the entire quilt.  This is the quilt as shown on the pattern.

This is one of my blocks to show the colorway I chose.

Friends for Christmas

My Favorite Things

Country Paths

All Things Christmas - Apparently I don't have a photo of this quilt either.  Here's what it's "supposed" to look like according to the pattern.

Here is a photo of four of my blocks to give you an idea of colors I chose.

Autumn House

There are others but this post is getting large so I'd better quit for now.  I will have a new block of the month to share soon.  I am putting together one for Sager Creek Quilts.  We hope to offer it as a block of the month Jan, 2011.  If you've never visited Sager Creek Quilts, you should indulge yourself this holiday season.  The shop is located in the heart of Siloam Springs AR in a beautiful historic home.  Cliff and Pam have a nice selection of fabrics and all the samples make it a place where you can become inspired.

Just typing Jan 2011 reminds me that's only a few weeks away so I'd better get back to sewing!


  1. Congrats on your entry in Road to Ca show. I also will have one there. Mine is also applique, hand quilted, all cream & white fabrics, called Milk & Honey. Good luck to you on your quilt. I made the same quilt but used purple, black and olive greens. Yours is beautiful and love your color choices.

  2. Congratulations on your quilt being entered in the Road to California Quilt show. This is probably the start of something big for you. I really enjoyed seeing many of you block of the month quilts. It seems I have purchased a couple of these. Mine are still sitting in my "retirement stash". I'm also glad to hear you are doing a block of the month for Sager Creek. I'm anxious to see this one.
