The River City Quilt Guild in Sacramento, CA always puts on a good show, complete with excellent vendors and boutique. This year was a banner year and it seemed to me the quilting was particularly good this year.
I am running out of time to create this post as I am preparing to go on a road trip to visit the Lompoc, CA guild. Unfortunately, my comments will be very brief:
A well deserved Best of Show went to this exquisite beauty:
And in no particular order:
Love the color and quilting.
Cool dude, must of been fun to make this.
Love the color and simplicity.
By the Featured Quilter; beautiful applique and quilting.
What a peaceful scene.
Great color for a fall piece.
She masterfully captured this scene in fabric.
Especially love the background colors. Beautiful scene.
Whimsical, love those colors and a great design.
The wonky and the color made me smile and want to be in Hawaii
Love the way the hearts both fade and show.
Fabulous graphic design and colorway.
I stood in front of this for a good while, examining all the details. Then I read the title. I believe you can sense emotion in a quilt.
Classic, graphic design, gotta love it.
Beautiful work so well done.
These must have been fun to make. These 2 caught my eye.
I liked the way the scene was cut up and put upon another piece.
I loved this quilt; perfect piecing and such lovely colors.
So pretty, many details.
Great use of fabrics, color and value.
Antique. This was beautifully done and preserved; silk with hand embroidery on each tiny piece.
Fabulous art piece; my eye traveled through and rested on details.
So fresh and happy.
Classic quilt and colors, wonderful quilting.
Oh yes I feel the sun and sea!
Superb piecing and beautiful quilting.
I love those colors and the flutter that comes from the fabric combinations.
This coat tells a story; excellent design.
Love the way the piecing and colors work so well together.
Charming! Lots of great piecing in there also.
I felt the gloom; well done.
This was a group quilt, one of the best I’ve seen.
Expert use of color and fabric choice.
Ya gotta love an Amish quilt. I like how she made it a bit modern but honored the colors and simplicity of the Amish.
You had to see this in person; amazing.
Silk (?) background and 3-D objects made this a beautiful quilt.
Great show River City!
