Show and Share with the River City Quilters!

Showing and Sharing al fresco in the court yard of the Mosaic Law Congregation in Sacremento, California!

Our show and share followed soon after en enjoyed our lunch out here on the patio ---lovely under the shady trees, complete with white table cloths.  We felt so special!

And there is just something about viewing quilts in natural daylight, isn’t there?

We had many Celtic Solstices and Grand Illusion finishes that were brought to share, each one different than the next, each one so lovely in color choice and design.

These California Quilters ---they do awesome work!


Love this one with the royal blue!


And another!


Oooh! Add in some turquoise!


A Gorgeous Grand Illusion!

((Yes, much much better OUTSIDE!))


And another, dappled in sunlight!


Gorgeous, ladies!  Gorgeous!

Celtic Solstice and Grand Illusion are now available as digital download patterns and found in my Quiltville’s Online Store! Get your copy and start yours today!

There were many other lovely quilts, both from the evening guild meeting the night before, and some that didn’t appear until after our lunch in the courtyard was over. 

You’ll find them ALL in the slide show below!

Show & Share, Sacramento, CA 2015

This is posting as I am STILL on my way home from Sacramento – my flight goes from Sacramento to Atlanta and then home….and then most likely straight to bed.

Tonight I’ll be drawing for the winner of the Quiltmaker’s Reader Favorites issue, along with the copy of Tangle Quilting, and a Summer Breeze Charm pack by Moda!

My many thanks to both the Auburn Foothills Quilters, and the Sacramento River City Quilters for hosting me over the past several days.  Your hard work behind the scenes makes my job that much easier and it was a treat to be with you all!
