See some incredible barn quilts on display in Tillamook, Oregon

As part of our road trip last month, we took the long way home and drove south from the Olympic Peninsula making sure to pass through Tillamook, Oregon.  Tillamook is home to the incredible and newly remodeled Tillamook Cheese (and ice cream) Factory, the Latimer Textile and Quilt Museum and also my first love when it comes to barn quilt trails.

Tillamook takes their barn quilts seriously.  In fact, they have more than 100 barn quilts on display throughout the downtown and surrounding areas.  As you drive through town, it seems that more corners display barn quilts than don't and they've cleared garnered the support of most of their local businesses since you can find designs on everything from the local banks and furniture stores to the bowling alley and police department.

It's nearly impossible to spot every barn quilt in just one visit, even the organizers have a tough time keeping up.  That's why I believe barn quilt trails are so great for small communities.  You always have a reason to come back and you're encouraged to slow down a bit instead of speedily passing through on your way to your next big destination.

Take a virtual drive around town with me and enjoy some of these photos that we were able to grab from our motorhome as we made our second visit through Tillamook.  If you'd like more information about a block or to find a map of the entire trail, please visit the Tillamook Quilt Trail website here.

Thank you for coming along with me on my quick pass through Tillamook.  If you're interested in adding a little barn quilt love in your own home, please take a look at our barn blocks here.  They're smaller, all-weather, and fit in to many different settings - no barn required, just like in Tillamook!
