The first stop was The Quilters' Cupboard in Atascadero, another lovely quilt shop.
After leaving there we drove to Kiler Ridge Olive Farm in Paso Robles where we had a guided tour of the facilities and an olive-oil tasting, followed by a delicious meal where each course included a different kind of olive oil. This was a unique experience for me, and I learned a lot, the most important thing being that a lot of commercial olive-oil is adulterated or over-processed, so you need to do your homework.
After an exciting ride down Kiler Ridge Road we went to the Seven Sisters Quilt Show, which was being held at the Madonna Inn Expo Center. This was a good-sized quilt show and the time I spent there went by fast.
|What I bought today: Fabric, thread, sewing kits, and olive oil!|
After the quilt show the bus took us back to the La Cuesta Inn, where dinner was on our own. Fortunately, the Apple Farm Inn and Restaurant was right across the street. Even if you don't eat there, it is fun to walk around the lovely grounds.
