After visiting the quilt shop in Wheeler, Nancy and I continued to drive north to Canon Beach. A friend had enthused about the wonderful selection of batiks at the quilt shop there, Center Diamond, and I wasn’t disappointed. We spent an enjoyable half hour just before closing, perusing the selection of fabrics and feeling inspired.
As well as the wide variety of batiks, the store offered many contemporary looking prints and patterns in keeping with the Modern Quilting style.
They also had some great patterns reflecting the local surroundings. I love this pelican and Haystack Rock.
Once again, I was surprised by how much inventory a place that doesn’t appear very large from the outside can offer. This is definitely a fun stopping point if you are in the area.
