It was my birthday on Tuesday and I spent the afternoon with a friend who shares the same birthday. We went to the town of LaConner (about 35 miles from where I live) where we were treated to a personal tour of the Quilt Museum. For anyone who loves quilts, lives in Western Washington or is planning a visit out here, I highly recommend seeing this museum. The museum is in a beautiful old Victorian house with gingerbread trim and a turret. Their exhibits change every 3 months and there is a lot to take in with 3 floors to explore. The town of LaConner itself is a quaint town on a river with lots of fun shops to poke around in. If you've never been to northwest Washington, plan a trip here, it's a great place for quilters - with lots of fabric shops.
