Tater Patch, Merrill, Oregon

Tater Patch in Merrill, Oregon is well worth taking the road less traveled.  It is anywhere from 8 to 20 miles off Hwy 97 depending on which way you go.  There is road kill along the way as Merrill is out in the middle of farm country.  You know it is worth the stop when you pass through the front door and all you see is quilts!  PS. don't forget I am trying to reach a 100 followers by Sister's Quilt Show so start nagging your friends to jump on board the Woolie!

And look who I ran into!  Linda Ballard!  She is a quilt instructor extraordinaire and is open to sharing her quilt experience with your shop or guild.  She is teaching in Bend this July at BJ's Quilt Basket.  You can contact her via her web site, Lets Quilt

Another member of "The Girls" is Deanna Charlton who is known for her mosaic quilts.  She is also available to teach and can be contacted at
