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.”
