On our second full day of the trip, we traveled to the town of Vista and Fat Quarters Quilt Shop located in an old farm house.
The shop is two floors and full of nooks and crannies chock full of fabric, notions, patterns, and samples.
After two hours of perusing and shopping, we headed to the town of Temecula known for its 1800s era historic frontier village of Old Town Temecula.
Our coordinator Kathleen was born in the area and was able to recommend several restaurants. I ate at The Bank Mexican Restaurant and Bar housed in, what else, a former bank building. Excellent food. Then group members went their various ways, sightseeing and shopping. The Old Town has several antique shops and other types of boutiques. A special event was planned for the afternoon when local quilters from the Valley of the Mist Quilters Guild invited us to a presentation of their work and activities. We met at city hall.
I loved this stunning mosaic.
Following are quilts created by Valley of the Mist guild members.
I particularly liked these wonderful pillows done by one member. Her sense of humor is fabulous. I asked if the faces were anyone special. She joked the last one was her husband.
