"Walk Our Blocks" Quilt Trail Map of Downtown
The Tillamook County Quilt Trail "Walk
Our Blocks" is another self-guided tour, giving your group or
family a comfortable and leisurely walk around downtown Tillamook.
View the interactive map below to help locate these colorful additions to the fabric of our town!
In 2010, the Quilt Trail extended into Tillamook and an additional thirty blocks were mounted on buildings of interested citizens and businesses within the city. This, along with the original trail, had the happy result of drawing tourists to the area specifically to see the quilt blocks.
The expansion also resulted in a waiting list of over 50 wishing to join the quilt trail. Coalition members took a deep breath: 30 more 4x4 foot blocks were made and five more 8x8 foot blocks. The group of seven set to work and by the June Dairy Parade, the number of blocks throughout central Tillamook County, edging into north and south county, had blossomed to 81. The coalition is now waiting for energetic souls to step forward to head committees for those northern and southern portions of the county and expand the trail.
Enjoy your walk through the downtown, spotting the quilt blocks and taking time to look for the historical plaques telling the history of several of the buildings.
