More pictures from the quilt show.  This one was my favorite!  So scrappy and a great variety of fabrics!

New York Beauty

After the show, we stopped along the road to take a picture of the ocean - so beautiful!

Somehow, on the way home, I missed a turn and we were talking a lot, so maybe that distracted me.  All of a sudden we were entering a small town and I didn't remember ever seeing this town on the way from Lincoln City to McMinnville.  Luckily, there was a quilt shop there, so we stopped to find out where we were!  We had kept going North and ended up in Cloverdale, OR at BJ's Quilt Shop.  The clerk explained how to get back on track, but we had to do a little shopping!

It turns out that I had been to this shop a few years ago when it was located in a house.  They just moved to this shop recently.  Was that serendipity? or what?

Next door to the quilt shop is one of the best antique shops I have ever been in!  So, if you ever make its to Cloverdale, OR, be sure to stop in both of these stores.

Our day ended up being a lot longer than it should have been, but we all enjoyed it nonetheless.


  1. Looks like a great day of fun and a little adventure! that is the way it should be with friends thanks for sharing!

  2. That is so funny! Love the quilt show photos on both posts, Ruth!!

  3. That quilt and its border are incredible! How do quilters come up with such beautiful creations? Just one more question: Are you sure you didn't plan to miss your turn on the way home? It certainly was a good one to miss!! Glad you saw so many fun things! ---"Love"

  4. Well, at least your detour was a fun one. : )
    That is an incredible quilt! I have always loved New York Beauty quilts, but never thought I would make one. It is starting to creep into the peripheral vision of my radar screen. Maybe someday.

  5. Serendipity! I think you must have an in-built tracking device for quilt shops.
