Buggy Barn Quilt Show

Mom and I went to the wonderful
Buggy Barn Quilt & Folk Art show
in Reardan, Washington.
This is the wonderful Buggy Barn quilt shop.
I will just let the pictures do the talking...
 It started at 10am.  We were 20 min. early.
This is the view of the cars in front of us.
And the cars behind us...
We didn't have to wait a long time,
though when waiting for a quilt show,
it does seems like forever.
Now quilts...

 That's Mom saying, "Look how they..."

This is the second barn that 
they use as a sort of annex during the show.
There was a shower that came through as I was
taking the picture so it's a little dark.
By the time we made it around the barn, 
the sun was shining.

Even quilts on the old water tower base.

Folks are usually pretty nice at quilt shows,
but this was exceptional.  It seemed as though
all of the attendees were as courteous as
the great families that hosted the event. 
I wasn't sure what to expect.
There was a great basket weaver,
wood work, metal work, and several
vintage style booths.
I kinda forgot to take pictures when we were 
looking around at the booths.
I did get one of this great little wagon.
After the rain, I was trying to shade my lens with my hand
(also in the picture) from the sun.
This was probably the most unique 
show I have attended.
It was a beautiful day in spite of the shower
in the morning.
I can't imagine the work that went in to putting
all of this together as
they had to wake up early in order to 
hang quilts the day of the show.
Due to the sketchy weather,
I am guessing they took them down
and re-hung them Sunday morning.
All I can say is
"Job well done!"
If you ever have the opportunity to attend,
I would highly recommend it.

Until next time,

  1. Thank you so very much for sharing your pictures! I've always wanted to attend Buggy Barn's quilt show but since I live across the country it's doubtful I'll ever make it, so I really, really appreciate your pictures! What gorgeous, inspirational quilts - some of these really took my breathe away. And what a wonderful setting for the show!!

  2. Your buggy barn quilt show title caught my eye and the quilts were absolutely awesome. I always love looking at the quilts brings back memories when my family members would quilt. My mom did it, but I didn't pay close enough attention because it wasn't something I thought I would do even though I helped her. Now I wish I had. We always look at the quilts whenever we get a chance. It looks like it is out in the middle of nowhere no offense attended, but it lets you know who really loves seeing them. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

  3. I've been to the show three times and loved it each time. Thanks for sharing, I was missing not going the last couple of years. It's amazing to see in person.
