Last weekend we took a camping trip with my parents to the Fort Rock region of southeastern Oregon. We were lucky to have perfect weather after so many weeks of thunderstorms. We had a really fun time checking out the Homestead Village Museum in Fort Rock. This is a hands on museum made from a collection of historic buildings moved to the site from the surrounding area. Each building is furnished with antiques or replicas of the items that would have been there at the time of settlement. We had such a wonderful time exploring the site. My favorite artifacts are the quilts. I don't think these are all from the time period of the early 1900's, but they are interesting nonetheless. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed that! The High Desert Museum here in Bend has just opened a quilt exhibit that is supposed to be pretty spectacular. I hope to get out there in the next few weeks for a look and I'll post photos when I do.
