I have so many pictures of Tillamook Head and the Seaside Prom from all my visits. Each time I would think, “This would make a wonderful art quilt.” But I didn’t try.
Imagine my surprise and joy when I saw this quilt at Road to California 2012 quilt show from a quilter who lives in Portland. I was mentally transported to that spot on the Prom, I could smell the salt air and feel the misty breezes. I stopped by this quilt every day I was there-I would close my eyes and imagine that I had just finished a cup of Dooger’s clam chowder and was walking off the calories.
I overheard a comment and then proceeded to explain the area to the person. They thought it was my quilt but all I could say was, “I wish it was and I will do something similar someday. But Seaside is like a second home for me.”
If I don’t try, I’ll never know if I can. So, no more housework for today – I’m off to the sewing room to try it. But here is one of my pictures from a past visit.
It is a lovely piece and your photo shows just how well they have captured the scene. No wonder you enjoyed it so much. Thank you for dropping by my blog and for your kind comments.
