Road Trip

I made mention that I'd be taking a road trip to North Seattle. Here's a taste!

After I picked up Michelle in Portland our first stop was Carriage Country Quilts in Des Moines, WA. Very cute shop, friendly help. 
Saturday we picked up Linda and headed to Laurie's in Marysville.
We about passed out when we saw Laurie's Mrs Billings quilt! What a masterpiece!! 

And we enjoyed seeing a few of her antiques too! Look for more in a blog post on Wednesday. 


  1. I like the antique design.....probably because I am drawn to circular type designs. It would make a good challenge starter for a group of more experienced piecers.

  2. That's quite the Day trip! Glad you could get away. I saw a few snippets of the show on IG. I'll be back Wednesday for MORE!

  3. Mrs Billings is amazing. Glad I could meet up with you guys!

  4. Must have been a lovely trip!
    I like a lot the quilt on the left side of the first picture (seems to be used as a curtain) !
    Love the idea of the different sort of blocks row-wise and as much as I can see it is very scrappy!
    Would love to see it entirely.
    Best wishes!

  5. I can't wait for Wed. :0) I've been to that Carriage Country Quilts - I thought it was a wonderful shop. I love that circular block! Have fun in Seattle!

  6. Looks like you had a great trip. I can tell that you also got lots of running in too! ;-))

  7. Road trip! Friends! Quilts! Sounds like lots of fun!

  8. Looks like fun, Lori. That is a stunning quilt! I will be watching for Wednesday's post. : )

  9. It was a wonderful 3 days. Thank you again!!!!

  10. Looks like fun! The Mrs. Billings quilt is awesome.

  11. what fun!
    can't wait to see more antique quilts.

  12. Lori,
    It was such a fun day with you all. Looking forward to the up coming exchange.
    Nice pictures from your trip. Could have used one more day, to get to Folk Tales in Lynden.
    So another trip up???
