    Citrus Belt Quilters is the local guild sponsoring this show and Home Tour. The quilts are all displayed outside (it is So. Calif) and then a featured artist was inside the library building. There were some vendors too and a Home Tour where quilts were on dislplay throughout the historic homes. I forgot to photograph the outside of the homes. We were not allowed to photograph inside. However, the featured artist was simply amazing. Her wearable art was exquisite! I was also impressed with all the applique work I saw throughout the show. Enjoy these photos:

    Hi Judee... it was this Redlands Home and Quilt Show that got me and my friend Judy hooked on quilting! We actually went to see the victorian style homes but they were all decorated with these amazing quilts...at the time, watercolor quilts and portrait quilts seemed to be the rage. It was the art quilts and the bright colored quilts that caught our attention. We joined our local quilt guild, the Nite Owls of Ontario, right after that and took a beginners quilting class from guild within a month.

    Thanks for sharing. I haven't been to that quilt show in a couple years now. Either last year or the year b4 they didn't have the Redlands show for some reason and haven't gone back since....thought that the collaboration of the CBQ and historical society had ceased. Obviously not, and gratefully so.

    There is next year.

    warm quilt hugs, sue

    Thank you for sharing your quilt show, I love to see all of these.

    Love the very creative orange label one, I suppose it was made using that photo copier tecnique.

    Be good with wine labels as well, just a thought, "lil ole wine drinkin me"

    Elle hic :D

    Hi Sue,
    I have 2 more postings of pics from this show under More pics and Even More.
    There may not be another show, I heard. Apparently, they had a lot of trouble coming up with volunteers this year. We went early to avoid the heat. The houses were all small and loaded with quilts. A lot of applique' this year.
    Glad to hear it inspired you to start quilting. Isn't it the best?
    Do you like your eons group? I should look into that.

    Hi Elle,
    We thought they may have used the photos on fabic technique except for one quilt that looked more original. A lady I know said she bought the labels as fabric a few years back so that's where that one may have come from.

    Judee-0624 - I used to belong to the Citrus Belt Quilters, when I lived in San Bernardino!!! I have been to one of the historical homes/quilt show and they are absolutely stunning. Do you ever go to the "Calico Horse" quilt shop?

    Wraez - I have a friend who used to belong to the Nite Owl quilters in Ontario/Upland, unfortunately, her name has slipped my mind, but she also has/had a longarm business...does that help any? I grew up in Pomona! Such a small world.

    Thanks for the memories, ladies!!!

    Hey Dorothy!
    It IS a small world! I am so happy to live in this community. You are really in a big city now, huh?
    The Calico Horse is my home away from home unless I discipline myself. Did you know there was a change of ownership a couple of years ago? Donna Sheridan is the new owner. They even have a website at www.thecalicohorse.com.
    Do you know where I could get the citrus label fabric?

    Hi Judee, maybe a lack of volunteers was why there wasn't a quilt show the one year I mentioned. Never really heard the scoop on it.

    I'll take a peek at your other pix, I'm sure they are inspiring too.

    I do like Eons...they have many many groups, just type in anything that is of interest to you & hit search (movies, Beatles, books, photography, chocolate...you name it) and you will most likely find a group. I am in 2 quilting groups there but it has been kinda quiet the last couple of weeks, which is fine cuz life has taken me in a couple of different directions lately. Probably the same for others, too. Oh, there are celebrities on their too...Jane Seymour is a member, she mentioned Eons when she was 'dancing'.

    warm quilt hugs, sue

    Judee.... I think lots of those citrus label quilts have transferred photos onto the fabric...you know copying from those many calendars that have been out over the years.

    But I could be wrong.. :lol:

    Dorothy of Kansas... small world indeed!

    gee I hope you can remember the Nite Owls member who has a long arm machine.... depending on how long you have been gone, that member might not be there anymore. I'm drawing a blank too, except for Cindy Meyers, Diane Jaimes and Christel Coit. Oh and Earlene Miller. (the blank kinda filled in, LOL)

    There may be others that I don't know about.

    warm quilt hugs, sue :D
