Tillamook County (Oregon) Quilt Trail

My family went on vacation to Tillamook County for spring break this year.  The Oregon coast is beautiful, and it is a trip I highly recommend to anyone needing a break from regular life.  In Tillamook County (home of the Tillamook Cheese Factory), we were, of course, surrounded by dairy farms, but I almost screamed out loud when I saw what else Tillamook County had to offer!

As we drove into the county, I began to notice a quilt blocks on the buildings.

The more milk farms we saw, the more quilt blocks we saw.  And then we drove into town.

They were everywhere!  Not just on the dairy farms, but on businesses throughout town!

Way to go, Tillamook County!  Thanks for making a quilter’s heart happy.

And, apparently, you can buy your own pseudo-barn quilt from Shopko!

I’m thinking our new shed might need one of these…
