2018 Road to California

It’s become a tradition for Greg, our friend Nancy, and I to go to Road to California Quilt Show in Ontario, CA each year. This year, Ventura Modern Quilt Guild had a booth at the show to help us gather donations for the Thomas Fire Relief Quilts we’ve been working on. But, I wasn’t going to let that stand in the way of our tradition! I took a couple of hours out of the booth, and spent some time checking out the amazing quilts and outstanding vendors. It was a long day, but we had a great time, and look forward to next year!


Thomas Fire Ventura County


We are so grateful that the skies have begun to clear in Ventura. Our hearts remain with our neighbors and everybody impacted by the fires in Southern California. The past week has been a painful and humbling week for many of us. Helplessly watching and waiting as the fire claims more ground.

We are introducing a block to all our quilting friends and family so we can help those who were affected. The call for quilt blocks has begun and as we receive the blocks, the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild will assist in making and quilting these quilts. A list from the RedCross will provide contact for those who lost so much in the recent days. Please help me pass this along to your other guilds and social media sites.

Use one light and one dark, or make it scrappy…however you want to finish your blocks, your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping us.
