Here's a picture of the quilt one of my customers entered into the Road to California quilt show.
If you look closely there is a big tree quilted in this quilt. It's kinda hard to see because I didn't want to detract from the beautiful hand applique work my customer did on those rings. I did my job and quilted it as my customer requested. It's not my personal style and is a bit more 'artsy' than I usually do, but it was an honor to have my work in such a huge quilt show. No, it didn't win any ribbons, but just to be accepted to the Road to California quilt show was quite a big deal for my customer. It was for her daughter's wedding and she just loved it. Now it's on it's way to Chicago to be it's permanent home there.
