This is at one of the many stops along the way. My sister was kind enough to bring good weather from San Diego. One of the lasts stops was at The Wild Rose Quilt Shop in Orting, Washington. This shop had to be one of best of the Shop Hop.
Here is Wild Rose! The shop is amazing and the staff was the best. I would recommend this shop to anyone visiting the area. I would even say take a special trip to see it.
The upstairs of the building is a retreat center with room for ten people to sleep and a small kitchen area. The center of the room is a huge classroom. (That's Deb taking a picture of Wild Rose.) I was sure I would win the grand prize from the shop hop.... a retreat for up to ten people but, alas, I didn't win. The retreat area has incredible views of the mountains and I was told that Orting was a well known biking, hiking area. Did I happen to mention that we had tons of fun? We came home exhausted but ready to go to more shops. After we came home I wrecked my knee and then have been fighting with bronchitis. I think I'm on the mend now but last two weeks have been a bust. I think I need to go do some quilting now!
