Many of the quilts and smaller quilted items will be for sale, and you can purchase raffle tickets for this year's queen-size quilt donated to the Cama Beach Foundation by the quilters. Proceeds from the sales support educational activities at the park.
The day's activities include events at the Cama Center: sewing quilt blocks, flower pounding and a bed-turning of antique quilts. For the unitiated, a bed-turning is where the quilts are displayed, turned back one at a time for viewing, and a quilter describes each quilt.
Admission is free but visitors must each buy a Discover Pass at the state park Welcome Center for parking. The Cama Cafe will be open for breakfast and lunch.
Quilts on the Beach goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27. Cama Beach State Park is at 1880 S. West Camano Drive, Camano Island. For more information contact Pam at 360-387-4550.
