My Tri County Quilt Tour Block

The Tri County Tour is fast approaching.  It's hardly a month away.  I'm sure all the shops are working hard to get their unique quilts all done.  For those of you that don't know about this.  There are eleven fantastic quilt shops in Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcome county.  We have banded together to make this area a great place to come visit if you want to see the BEST quilt shops in the North West!
We have a fun event we call the quilt tour each year.  It's March 20th through the 23rd.  This year the theme is, "A Year In Quilts"  Each shop has created a unique block that represents a month in the year.  THEN,  each shop creats a quilt that contains all the blocks.  You will be amazed at all the different projects, and you can collect all the block patterns from each shop.   I think this is our sixth year of the tour.  We have gotten lots of positive feedback on it.  It's a small enough tour, that you can get is all done in one day.  But, It's nice to take your time and explore all the shops. Everyone seems to have a wonderful time visiting all the shops, and seeing just how different we all are.  We have a great time doing it!!!  Lots of the shops have drawings and door prizes.The Turkey block is the one you will get at Aunt Mary;s.    I still have a few more to make.  I will give you a little hint about them. CUTE!!!
