My Favorite Quilts from Road2Ca ’22

So…. the quilts at the Road to California show this year were truly AMAZING! And since this was also the case at the International Quilt Festival last Fall, I’m starting to think that maybe one of the positives that have come from this pandemic is the stellar variety of quilts that were made?!?

But please remember, I am presenting this list purely as a fan of quilting. I have no special training and little to no experience creating quilts or judging them. The quilts in this post simply represent those that I loved seeing the most and I hope you enjoy seeing them too! 🙂

“Not Today” by Kestral Michaud of W. Melbourne, FL
The Road Runner is after his next meal. chasing a Common Collared Lizard
thru a steampunk junkyard.
“Woodland Wilds” by Ann Horton of Redland Valley, CA
Her morning hiles in the woodland hills of northern CA home inspired this quilt.
“The Year of the Masks” by Rhonda Montgomery of Orem, UT
She loves making wearable art & quilting. After a trip to New Orleans
she knew she HAD to make a quilt w/masquerade masks!
“Day Into Night” by Deb Deaton
When Deb saw this photo by Robery Murray, she knew that the splendor of this landscape needed to be captured in fiber!
“Declaration of Independence – Voices of Freedom” by Nancy Prince of Orlando, FL
The quilt front & back was created in PhotoShop & printed on fabric.
It took over 4000 hours & over 4 years to create.
“The Memories that Remain” by Lynn Czaban of Eugene, OR
Lynn said she’s fascinated with the human face
and our ability to communicate without uttering a single word.
“Hungarian Rhapsody” by Margaret Solomon Gunn of Gorham, ME
Made exclusively from many bold shades of Silk Radiance fabric
and featuring original floral hand-applique.
“Sweet Madame Blue” also by Margaret Solomon Gunn of Gorham, ME
Named for a 1975 Styx song and her musical muse during the quilting phase. The design was created specific for the Turkish lace doilies used through the quilt.
