Road to California: Over some years I collected some 20 plus ‘grape’ fabrics which I then used to make this quilt. It was supposed to be a strippy, but the borders as they are now took so long I decided to make them into borders and use the middle for a Road to California pattern. California has loads of wine so it seemed appropriate. It was really a wonderful coincidence when I found the quilting thread colour to be ‘Napa Valley’! This has been given as wedding present to my friend’s son.
