Road to California is a Quilters’ Conference and Showcase of over 300 judged quilts from all over the United States. It is held in Ontario, California every year at the end of January. They have amazing quilt classes taught by the best teachers from all over the nation as well.
So back in October I pondered if I should enter the quilt “Stars To Light Your Way” I had made for Aaron and Vanessa, and had just given to them. Keep in mind it was a wedding present and they got married May 5, 2012. So it was only one and half years late. I had entered another quilt one other year and was rejected. So my pride was still stinging a little, but lots of my colleagues had entered over the years and even the best gets rejected. So I figured, “What the heck; give it a shot.” I was so shocked when I received a congratulations email stating that my entry had been accepted. They stated that “We pride ourselves on selecting from the highest quality entries for our Showcase.”
Here I am standing in front of the quilt on display at the show.
So, Aaron and Vanessa will get the quilt next week and I promise not to take it back again.
