I am a little bummed too. I was there all day on Thursday, met my sister there and completely forgot about meeting at Superior Threads' booth! We spent most of the time talking, we hadn't seen each other for awhile and so I didn't see many quilts. She spent three days there. My daughter wanted to go today (Sunday) so I figured I could see the quilts then. DD still came for a visit but she had changed her mind about going to Road. I couldn't very well go off to a quilt show when DD was here for a visit. Darn! Oh well, there's always next year! What I did see was beautiful. I hope others will post some photos because I really didn't see the big winners.
I was able to get John Flynn to sign the quilt he made for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative challenge in November, 2010. My bid was the winner for his "Heart of the Storm". Flynn was the Featured Artist at Road to California this year. I've spoken with him many times at Road before but this year, holding his quilt and getting him to sign it for me, I was starstruck! You'd think I was a teenager again, seeing the Beatles! There's my age, right out there!

By the way, take a look at the quilts for sale at www.alzquilts.org
You can also see the quilts that will be auctioned the first ten days of February. I won't tell you the one I hope to get!
