Road to California 2011 Show Video

I’ve been trying to find more photos from the Road to California 2011 Show. So far, I found this seven minute video on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJk3Q4-aTkw

The audio isn’t the best; there are moments that you don’t need to hear the speaker’s comments, but it’s fun to see some of the quilts.

I’ll post again when the winners are online.
