To see 80 plus quilt blocks take a self-guided tour on the Tillamook County Quilt Trail. The trail showcases the great heritage of historic barns and buildings in Tillamook County on Oregon’s Scenic North Coast with a large painted wooden quilt block. The Trail, the first of its kind on the West Coast, have invited tourists and locals alike to share the dairy history and celebrate the unique rural heritage that is Tillamook County.
Although Red’s time on the Quilt Trail was short it did get a chance to visit The Leuthold Dairy thanks to the innkeepers at Sandlake Country Inn. Five generations of grown up on this farm and the quilt block hangs on the oldest barn on the property, once a milking barn, now housing the young calves. This structure is #10 on the Quilt Trail
