If there could be a perfect marriage of blog posts for me, it would include quilts and doors. And if you were able to read my blog week before last, you will know that I have found the way.
We drove west from Topeka and our first glimpse of blocks started here in Alma. This is the county seat of Webaunsee County. County population in 2008 was 6,922. The sign above reads ” Alma 150th Anniversary – Independence Day Celebration – July 4th” We were a day late on the festivities. Probably a good thing for the purpose of viewing the ‘drive-by’ blocks.
We first stopped at the city park which had these posted for visitors. Very helpful and informative. A few ‘doors’ included if you look closely.
When doorscursioning, one must include churches. Thankful the rain moved on for us.
Old door alert! Just propped but it counts. Would love to come back and see this store inside. Bet it’s got some great stuff!
A side note that this community was pretty near a tornado warning just a couple weeks ago(Aug.15). We get Kansas City news and weather and watched as they were tracking the storm. We were so glad they weren’t affected directly.
Just in case you’re wondering what quilt I’ve got in the hoop lately, it’s this little number. Hand pieced double wedding ring quilt in red, white and blue –lap-sized and hand quilting a little each evening.
So many more photos to come of both quilt blocks and doors. Hope you can also visit Norm 2.0 for even more wonderful doors from around the world!! Happy Thursday!
