Another beautiful day in the neighborhood . .

Today was the Buggy Barn Annual Outdoor Quilt Show.  You may know the Buggy Barn, the Crazy gals, with the stack, cut and sew patterns and books.  That Buggy Barn is just a few miles east of where I live in the middle of a wheat field in beautiful Washington state.  We are so fortunate to have them as part of our local quilting community, such an inspiration.

This year's show was threatened with rain for the past few days but yesterday and today could not have been more perfect.  I love to walk around the outdoor show with all of the beautiful quilts, many made in their classes by students, hanging on the lines, waving in the breeze, draped over the fences.  Such a wonderful, and very Washington, backdrop for gorgeous colorful quilts.

I took a few pictures today.  If you ever get a chance to visit here, make sure to stop in at the Buggy Barn shop.  It is a treat you won't want to miss.  Now, without further fanfare, follow me.

This is what greets you when you turn off the gravel road.

The quilts are hung on the sides of every building, every fence and on lines waving in the breeze.  Quite a site, full of color.
 The hollyhocks are blooming as well.

This is the walk up to the classroom building

Usually, at quilt shows I take tons of pictures of quilts, especially upclose.  Today I wanted to give you more of an overall view of the setting for this wonderful show.  Of course, the quilts were wonderful, but the venue was what really made my day.  I hope you enjoyed my little travel log, I sure enjoyed myself.

Until next time, keep stitching!
