Today we drove to La Connor, about 65 miles north of Seattle. La Connor is a beautiful old little village, situated along the Swinomish channel. Halfway on our way to La Connor we had to made a stop in Arlington at "Aunt Mary's Quiltstore", and of course have coffee and a cookie.

Quiltmuseum and the other is the Calico Cupboard Cafe and Bakery.
La Connor Quiltmuseum was the home of Gaches Family. The Gaches brothers played a very important part in the development and history of La Conner.

Unfortunateley we were not allowed to make pictures of the quilts in the museum, but I was allowed to make some picture of the interior.
