    Lightbulb A must see for all quilters

    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.

    My sister & I went there this past August. It was a very nice exhibit. They were working on the exterior, but that didn't bother us. I plan to visit it again when I go back next year to visit my sister.

    I lived in Bellingham Wa for 12 yrs. LaConner was always one of my favorite places to visit. I have pictures of the tulip fields when they were in bloom along with the daffodils in my home . I"m spending time on Lopez Island next summer. It is a beautiful area to visit.

    Happy Belated Birthday. Quilt museums are such interesting places. You can almost see those dear ladies sitting around the quilt with loving stitches.......
