Road Trip Christal Carter's !!

View from Living Room !

Mid December my friendship group, CottonPatchers, took a trip to visit Quilt designer, author and artist Christal Carter who lives near San Diego,Ca. What a fun day!!  We had a lovely lunch plus a tour of her studio and beautifully decorated house and to top it off...Quilts! We were treated to a small show of some of her quilts,plus previews of upcoming.

Wool hand prints from family.
Then we got to see the incredible Play House that she and her husband built for their grand kids. It's all decorated with quilts too.

Running water in the playhouse!
Everywhere we looked there was something unique and clever to see. Christal uses many of her quilts throughout her house along with antiques and finds from thrift stores and yard sales!

Lots of inspiration. We all enjoyed the day and we all wanted to have our birthdays in her playhouse too!
Please visit her website, and take a look. If any of you are going to Road to California Quilt Show this January, she is teaching classes and will also be a vendor. Stop by her booth and say hi !
