Tillamook County Quilt Trail loses a Friend
The Tillamook County Quilt Trail Coalition (TCQT) is saddened to report the loss of one of our founding members, Faye Jacques, February 3, 2015. From the very beginnings in 2009, Faye brought knowledge of and ideas about quilt trails she had visited in the eastern half of the U.S. Along with her daughter, Teri Fladstol, and several others, she was a huge part of making this quilt trail a reality and a major tourist attraction for Tillamook County. She played a part in each of the 102 blocks throughout the county. Teri relayed that it was her Motherís wish that anyone desiring to remember her do so with a contribution to the Tillamook County Quilt Trail.
If you care to contribute, send donations to TCQT, P.O. Box 1165, Tillamook, Oregon, 97141. You may also learn more about the TCQT through our
