Back to the Buggy Barn

I spent the last weekend in August at the Buggy Barn's Fifteenth Annual Quilt Show
in Reardan, Washington.
After driving down a long gravel road,
miles from the nearest town,
I arrived at the farm.
Overnight, the quilts have been hung on the barns.
And the fences.
And in the air.
The original "buggy barn" on the property
is now a quilt shop.
And is covered in quilts.
Quilts line the gravel driveway to the second barn.
I don't know what this thing is, but it's now a quilt display.
Tents were set up for folk artists to sell their creations.
This barn is where I'll be spending the day,
signing copies of my book, Welcome Home.
In the morning, I'm at the table in the shade.
Behind me, are a few of my other quilts.
It's HOT (about 96 F or 34 C)
so in the afternoon I move to the side of the barn,
trying to stay in the shade.
More of my quilts are displayed here.
This is my view for the two days I'm there.
This little guy seemed to like my quilts.
And this one did too.
Another view of the barn.
And the fields.

Then the wind picked up.
Amazingly, the quilts stayed on the lines.

Proof that you're never too young to quilt--
these two cuties started at age 5.
When it's time to take the quilts down,
the whole family gets involved.
Husbands, kids, and grandkids.

Thanks, Pam and Janet, and your wonderful family and staff
for another amazing show!


  1. Looks like such a great time - the quilts and the view are wonderful!

  2. I wish I wasn't so far away, would love to go to their show.
    So many wonderful quilts and love the way they are displayed.


  3. I sure wish I could have went....I keep hearing about it and live on the opposite coast!
