Tuesday we drove out to Cape Cod and went to the National Seashore where we saw the lighthouse below as well as other lighthouses.

We also saw this memorial to the pilgrims in Providence.  The weather has been gorgeous for most of our trip and you can see the blue sky in these pictures.

I went into an antique shop and saw some quilts and quilt tops.  The border on this quilt top is the exact same fabric that I have some of (in my Gone to Texas quilt).  I was really surprised,  because I wasn't sure that the fabric I had was really a reproduction.  I think I got it from the scrap bin at one of my favorite quilt shops and it didn't have any selvedge on it.

I love this dresser scarf or tablecloth, I didn't open it up to see exactly what it was.

This quilt has the same cheddar polka dot as the border above - exactly like the piece I got!

I found a quilt shop in Sturgridge, MA and got a few things.  No pictures of the inside, but it was a shop just crammed with good stuff!

That's it for today.  I am at a shop getting the oil changed in the truck and it just got finished.  Thanks for all the nice comments!


  1. Beautiful weather, fabulous buildings, antique store, and a quilt shop... what more can a girl ask for?

    Safe travels...

  2. Beautiful quilts/tops, and handwork! You have seen so much more than most of us will ever get to see! Have a safe trip home! See you when you get here! ---"Love"

  3. I'm a little envious of you and your travels while I'm stuck at home, going to work, but I know my time will come...eventually retirement will get here right?! You've seen some beautiful sights and I thank you for sharing them with us. Did you buy any of the antique quilts? That one with the star would have been screaming at me to be purchased!

  4. I especially love the dresser scarf. Beautiful pictures.

  5. That sky looks so beautiful. Love the picture of the lighthouse.
    The quilts were beautiful.
    Thanks for taking us on the road with you two.
    Safe travels.
