So hopefully everyone has their quilting buddies assembled and a full tank of gas ... tomorrow is the first day of the Tri-County Quilt Tour 2012, "Sew Northwest"! All the shops have had their quilts hung for almost a week, and maybe you've gotten a chance to preview a few. The participating shops cover 91 miles from Bothell to Lynden. Here at Two Thimbles, we went with a Crops of the Northwest theme for our quilt "Harvest What You Sew". Did you get that from our hint last week? We've even got some educational handouts if you are interested in finding out more!
The event will run through Saturday, and each shop will have a free pattern for you to pick up as well as a unique charm with a $10 purchase! There will be a few items on sale as well, so this is definitely an event you won't want to miss. It's worth your time to see all the creative ways that each store took the theme and blocks and made a gorgeous quilt. So hopefully we'll see you this week!
