Sacramento and a Quilt Show

I had quite a busy weekend. On Saturday I traveled to Sacramento, CA for the monthly Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild meeting. There were lots of new faces and plenty of fantastic projects shared.

After the meeting I took a short drive to Cafe Rolle in downtown Sacramento, a French restaurant seen on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Small restaurant, about a dozen tables total

I chose to eat on the patio, where it was quieter, and springlike weather.

Croque monsieur (ham and cheese sandwich), salad and ice tea. For dessert, blackberry creme broulee. All delicious. I'd go again.

On Sunday, quilter friend Judy P. and I went to a quilt show put on by the local quilt guild. We saw many beautiful quilts, and sat in on a free art quilt lecture. Here are some of my favorite quilts:

Woman is the quilt maker

Selvage quilt

Contrast is striking

Love the blue against orange

This photo is for my daughter-in-law Laurie, who loves I Love Lucy.


Quilt shop owner and Facebook friend Connie L. made this quilt from ties that belonged to a friend who passed away. Colorful and comical, there is even a Campbell's Soup tie. Connie's friend must have been a fun man.
