Seattle Trip Part 2

Here are some more pics of beautiful scenery we saw along the way.

Montana was pretty flat for some of the distance across, but then the mountains began. They were absolutely awesome! It was so cool to see the snow capped mountains when we were in 60 degree weather as we drove across the state. The mountains looked so close, but were many, many miles away.

We stopped at the quilt shop Fiberworks in Billings, MT.

This quilt shop is owned by Laura Heine who designs fabric for RJR Fabrics. She also designs her own patterns. The day we stopped she was doing a demo on her new pattern for tablerunners and placemats using raw edge applique. Lucky me! She designs and uses a lot of florals. I had to have a piece of her fabric. The design is large scale, which I normally do not use, but I could not resist the beautiful flowers and colors.

The next shop that we stopped at was the Parkland Parish Quilt Shop in Tacoma, WA.

A very cool shop. It was neat to just look at the building, besides the fabric! The building was over a century old! Very cute with selections mixed with antiques.

We then headed to Seattle! While we were there we rode the DUCK! Such fun! We got to see some of the city by land and by sea! One of the highlights in Seattle was visiting Pike Place Market. This is a huge marketplace with every kind of food imaginable. There were so many people there and so many things to see! I loved the flower stands and they even had a quilt shop there called Undercover Quilts!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the highlights from my trip! It was just awesome!

Happy Sewing,
