Tillamook and Quilt Blocks

Just over 20 miles from the campground is the town of Tillamook, famous for it’s cheese.  But there also barns and buildings in the area with quilt blocks on them.  Some are part of a walking tour of the town while the rest involve driving around the surrounding area.

The cheese factory is not as we remember.  When we visited, about 20 years ago or so, there was a tour of the cheese making process then a sampling of some of the cheeses.  Course the tour groups were small then so it was more personal.  We even met the Rabbi who supervised the once-a-month making of Kosher Cheese.  Don’t know if they still make Kosher, couldn’t find anyone to ask.  We did the sampling line, bought a brick and some snacks and Tea then headed for the other cheese factory.  Blue Heron makes Brie and nothing but Brie, they are a very small operation.

These old trucks were at Blue Heron.

Then we found the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center. Here’s their website ( for more information.  From there we went in search of quilt blocks on barns and buildings.  Here’s just a few of the ones we found.


On the way back to the campground, we followed this lovely old car, it’s a 1915 Ford, with Calif plates.
