Roadshow to California 2011

Hard to believe a year has passed but, once again I made it to the Roadshow to California quilt show in Ontario ( and no, I still don't quilt ). Older posts show images from last years show and this one was surprisingly different. Lots of big imagery on the quilts ( or more accurately fabric masterpieces ). Usually quilting is about repetition but, as I've said many times before, these ain't your grandmothers quilts. However they are still made completely out of fabric and lots of machine and hand sewing. There is NO painted fabric on any of these images. Every different color or shade or tone is a separate piece of fabric. Just like painted masterpieces in museums and galleries a flat photo cannot relay the depth, the detail, and the stunning beauty of seeing these quilts in person. And I am a lucky girl with a fabric artist for a mother who takes me to these wonderful shows. Thanks mom :)
