Teri"s Travels: Northwest Oregon from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

For the most part, the first 3000 miles of our cross-country road trip this summer followed the Lewis and Clark Trail. The culmination of that leg of our journey was our visit to Fort Clatsop, where the explorers wintered before their return to St. Louis. As we explored the museum, I (Teri) was thrilled to see this quilt, commemorating the exploration of Lewis and Clark, made by an eighth grade class. As a former teacher, this project warmed my heart!

"As one unit in their 8th grade U.S. History class, these students researched ...

Teri's Travels: The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

I (Teri) have been to a lot of quilt shows. And I've read about the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show for years and always thought it would be wonderful to attend. This summer, I was able to check off that bucket list item during our trip across the US. This show is not just a quilt show. It is an experience that is impossible to describe in words—or pictures—and even begin to do it justice. But I will try to give you a sense of the magic. 

Beware—you might be planning a trip to Oregon next July ...

Friday Fun! from Humble Quilts

As many of you know now if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram I went out of town for a quick getaway. 

We had a little time before needing to get to the airport so we stopped in here: 
 It is in a strip mall but was a really nice shop! I saw the latest Primitive Quilts magazine and spotted the charity article on the quilts for Paradise, CA. Jennifer did a really great job. My backpack was completely jammed but would love to see the article again and show my niece, since it mentions our trip to Paradise ...
