As I mentioned in my previous post, we had a great vacation in Maine!
I was surprised by the number of quilt shops we ran into while driving around Downeast Maine. But one quilt shop owner said that there are over 3000 members of the Maine Quilt Guild, a pretty remarkable number considering the small population.
One of the more interesting shops was Jolene's Originals, which Jolene runs out of her home in Jonesport. She actually has her own line fabrics, printed by Northcutt.
This pretty blueberry print is one of her designs. I can't imagine anything more exciting, or gratifying, than seeing MY NAME on the selvage of fabric! I bet she was pretty excited when that first bolt arrived!
That's West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec, just below the Canadian border. We visited there and enjoyed being at the easternmost point in the U.S. The attached building used to be the lightkeeper's quarters, but it's now a museum.
