Oh Boy...it is my birthday month...and I am going to celebrate all month!!! I am finding it hard to believe that it is already October!!!
When I got back home I had to hit the door running and wore a groove in the road between Sisters and Bend. I took a break from the work to teach my DIL how to tack a binding down. When I walked into their home I saw this quilt on the wall...I had totally forgot about making this quilt! I believe I made this one for my son when he left for college...and the fabrics were purchased on a previous Fabric Stalker retreat! Jane also purchased all the fabrics for this quilt! I love our retreats :) And am excited to be heading on another one!
Now back to our coast trip. I was sad to hear that a quilt shop in Florence had closed. It reinforces the reason I write this blog...we are soooo blessed in Central Oregon. With 9 shops within 45 miles I do not want any of them to close!!! Nor do I want any quilt shop to close!!! Florence is a sweet spot on the Oregon Coast and the Old Town area is a nice place to walk.
There is still a shop in Florence and provides a place to meet for a lot of the coastal quilters. There is a variety of fabric and the group that meet at the other shop are still meeting at Wenz-Daze.
I love the quilt on the cover of this slide show :) I am heading to a Fabric Stalker Retreat in a coastal town this weekend. So, next week I will have some great slide shows!!! We are staying in the retreat space that is located above the quilt shop!!! Is that amazing!!! I will continue to finish up the week with more peeks of the Oregon Coast Road trip with HH...see you tomorrow!
