My new fabric purchases have not yet been tallied up and photographed, but I can show you the shops we visited on our first leg of the coastal Quilt Run 101. I may also have taken a few shots of the ocean, and a shop mascot.
|Quilter's Cottage in Newport: our first stop. Does my cousin-in-law look excited? I really liked this shop; lots of "my types" of fabrics, but I restrained myself pretty well. I knew I had a whole lot of shops yet to visit.|
|Ruth's Family Fabrics is in Waldport. This store also carried other types of fabric, such as for clothing construction.|
|Cousin-in-law and her mom getting ready to enter Wenz-Daze Quilter's Emporium in Florence. We poked around here for quite a little while.|
|Quilter's Corner in Port Orford was our last stop on that first day. We didn't have time to make it to the next one before closing so went straight to our motel in Brookings, then went to dinner.|
|One ocean view along our drive between Port Orford and Brookings.|
|Country Keepsakes Quilt Shop in Brookings, while not as much for my fabric tastes, was absolutely the.most.fun. The ladies here were so absolutely fun, friendly and helpful. We hung out here quite awhile.|
|I don't remember exactly where this was, but we got out and watched the waves crashing for a short while.|
That concludes Part I of the Quilt Run 101. I'm looking forward to Part II. It can be done in a single day. I've heard the weather is supposed to be much better next weekend. For Part I, we had a lot of rain and a lot of wind. If I remember more details about any specific shop as I photo my purchases and post about them, then I'll mention them, but it was pretty much a whirlwind for me and I'm not always attentive to all the details of the shops aside from recognizing whether or not their overall fabric selection fits 'my style' or not.
