Here's a little corner of Carriage Country Quilts, which we stopped at on our way to N. Seattle.
My brother has a simple little condo on echo lake. Here is the view from the balcony.
Here's a view from the dock.
I picked Michelle up in Portland after work on Friday- she had Monday off so it made it worth her coming on this quick trip.
After picking Linda up Saturday morning we went to Laurie's where she took over the driving duties. But before we left her house.......
She shared her finished Camelot quilt designed by Trish Harper and published in
4 parts in Quiltmania. It was gorgeous!
Her home is always good for a little photo op!
A darling quilt with great use of the madder border fabric!
Our first stop after Laurie's was Quilters Coop. JoAnn used to own a quilt shop in Temecula, but now she is in Stanwood. She mostly does online, but she graciously opened her doors for us.
We had the place to ourselves, so we made ourselves comfortable. Linda and Michelle were especially happy to dig through the fat quarters.
Linda was on the hunt for a red to go with her sampler blocks. Of course, we gladly gave our opinion!
Here was a beautiful quilt on display.
JoAnn and her husband live on this beautiful lake and they are building a quilt retreat home!
I know it is going to be spectacular!
She was as sweet as can be!
A final photo before hopping in the car and making our way to LaConner Quilt Museum, now called Pacific NW Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum.
Those photos will be shown on Friday~
We met Merry and Sharon at the museum then we all went to lunch.
It was so much fun and the food was great!
Then we made our way to Two Thimbles Quilt shop in Bellingham.
I adore these reproductions that Lee was inspired by a vintage quilt that I remade.
You can see mine HERE.
And here is the display of the Year of the Rooster challenge! Must get busy on mine.
More of Two Thimbles.
Love her shop! Thanks Lee for making us feel so welcome.
Two Thimbles Selfie!
It was a full and fun day!
