What a week! And here's a sneak peek!

I can barely contain myself this week with so much happening, I just had to share it with some of my friends! Not only did my fabric samples come in the mail and I was able to design a quilt for them but the Riverside Museum came to my house to select 8 paintings to hang in the museum for the next few months!! I am honored to have this exhibit at the museum it is the direct result from winning last years still life category in the Museums Members show. I am going to go to art walk tomorrow night and check it out. Then today I went to Road to California to set up our Art Groups 2012 group quilt. We have never seen it hanging all together since it is so long and to try and find a wall 27' long to hang and photograph is close to impossible. Carolyn gave us a premier spot in one of the hallways and the quilt looks amazing, the women did a fantastic job! Here is some of the details but you have to see it for yourself up close!






The quilt was something I had originally designed as a pool mural and made some changes to better fit the fabric. Each women could use any technique but had to add a personal element to their piece. From there I went over to Gingers Booth where I set up my patterns in preparation for the next 4 days where I will be demoing and selling my patterns. I hope, if you are going to Road, you will stop by and see the quilts and come over and say hi! And please, don't miss the Route 66 exhibit by Pat Blair which is amazing. Pat painted the back drop of the Route 66 hwy that runs from CA, AZ, NM, TX, OK, KS, MO and IL. The quilts represent different areas along the highway and are placed where they belong on the road map! It is an awesome exhibit, great job Pat!! Here is a sneak peek! Some of the women in the Iris challenge were also in the Route 66 Exhibit, amazing!
