What You Can Do With Road Fabric

Road to California has a tradition of having fabric specially designed for their anniversary shows.

20th Anniversary Fabric

Alexander Henry Fabrics was commissioned to create the fabric used to help celebrate Road to California’s 20th Anniversary in 2015.

Road Fabric

Philip de Leon, designer with Alexander Henry Fabrics, said of the experience of creating the fabric, “We were flattered to be asked for this project. We were shooting high and wanted to make {Road to California} happy. The end result is very ‘Road’ and very ‘Alexander Henry.’”

Road Fabric

The design process took two months. It began centered around the state flower of California, the poppy. It was also important that the fabric represented Road’s “community of quilters” in a graphic way.” Phillip and his sister, co-designer Nicole, got inspiration from graphic artist Alexander Girard who is known for his clean lines and iconic illustrated style. The result included symbols for the industry and for Road: a sewing machine, the Ontario Convention Center, quilt designs and tools.

25th Anniversary Fabric

Road to California’s 25th Anniversary Fabric featured snapshots of actual Road activities through the years. Featured on the fabric was Road’s logo and colors along with pictures of past teachers and vendors.
