Cattle Country Quilts & Crafts

The town of Joseph, Oregon reminds me of Sisters about 30 years ago.  A part of me wants it to stay it's little sweet self...where the road ends at the mountain and there is only one way back out.  But, when a town gets featured on the front cover of Sunset magazine...well, there is a change comin' on the wind.  I am glad we chose to visit although it seemed there were lots of others that had the same idea.  A Dragon Boat race on Wallowa Lake, a Thunder Run of Harleys and a Vintage car rally...as the cover of Sunset says, The Tiny Oregon Town On The Verge of Discovery...has happened.  We'll have a great video of the region on Quilt Roadies soon.  

Yep, with the start of bow hunting this guy was hanging out in the middle of town chilling...having a good laugh at all those hunters wondering where he went...just a building down from the quilt shop he was saying his prayers in the yard of the local church :)


Cattle Country Quilts is located in the middle of town which basically has one street of commercial businesses.  This shop has a little of everything and also carries a lot of western.  You won't suffer shopping here, LOL.  They are also blessed that one of our Quilter's Affair instructors Colleen Blackwood lives down the road a piece and is teaching several classes!  Quilt Roadies will have a conversation with Colleen in a couple of weeks along with a slide show on The Quilt Show, Anna & G On The Road.



Enjoy the slide show and we'll see your tomorrow :)
