Being a quilter I was anxious to visit the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center in Tillamook, so after we saw the murals we went out to the center,
and though they offer groups and classes in weaving and spinning as well (one lady was actually carding and spinning the cotton from pill bottles…creative reuse!!!), we were there to see the “doll” quilts (very small sized) of Andrea Balosky in a show called “Small Wonders” (which I first read about here). Here are a few of the very nice small quilts, all hand quilted
but here was the big surprise for me:
When Cynthia and LeeAnn and I were in Sisters a couple of summers ago I bought a quilt top which I’ve been quilting on and off
I read in the show label that Andra Balosky had lived in Bend but now was studying the Buddhist lifestyle somewhere in the far east, so I guess I’ll never know if she made this top and cut off a section for her doll quilt, if she bought the top used part of it, or just what..fascinating splice, no?
