Haven’t been to the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center in Tillamook, Oregon before so this was a bucket list place to go. It was the opening of our High Fiber Diet group show ‘Making Our Mark’. I managed to squeak in my piece ‘Fractal Ribbons‘.

Long way out there – right out in the country. Definitely a destination place. It was lovely for me to see all the pieces together. Mainly because I have been a member of this group for over a year and haven’t seen very many of the artists’ pieces. For once I could pore over each quilt for as long as I wanted.

The fun part was looking for the ‘mark’. Which is a design we all had to incorporate into our pieces. Sometimes not so easy to find!

I snapped some pix of all the pieces. Not best quality as taken on a phone but does give a good idea of how this ‘neutral’ exhibition looked.

Truthfully can say I didn’t have a favourite quilt. They were all really cool – and I’m not just saying that!

A couple of weekends ago we drove out to Tillamook, Oregon. The town of the fantastic cheese factory. And butter, and ice cream. What a cool place.

On the way I kept noticing signs for the Latimer Quilt and Textiles Center. How did I not know this was so close? My usual head in the clouds obliviousness I suppose. Well, now I know.

This year they exhibited 2 contemporary quilt artists – Barbara Shapel and Larkin Van Horn. I am impressed.
