Buggy Barn Quilt Show

Living in the Pacific Northwest offers so many opportunities to enjoy gorgeous quilts. Every summer is filled with a plethora of quilt shows, craft fairs, and folk art fairs, all within driving distance. Yay!

This weekend Hubby and I drove out to Reardan, Washington, for the annual quilt and folk art show at the Buggy Barn Quilt Shop. Located about 20 miles west of Spokane in the midst of wheat fields, the locale is absolutely perfect to show off the time-honored tradition of handwork.

Hundreds of feet of white rail fencing leading into and surrounding the property were covered with quilts of every size, color, and pattern.

Two buildings have quilts pinned to every wall, and clotheslines are strung to display even more.

When we stepped out of the car, wheat was all we could see.

Lots and lots of wheat.

Before long, a barn came into view.

Housing part of the folk art sale that spilled over into tents.

We took a peek, but I was there to see the quilts. And I wasn't disappointed! I have no idea how many quilts there were; let's just agree that there were LOTS. I took pictures of some that impressed me or spoke to me in some way.

There were whimsical quilts:

Tessellating quilts:

There were awesome New York Beauty quilts:

And lots, lots more!

If you didn't have the chance to come to this year's show, hopefully you can check it out next year. You won't be disappointed!


P.S. If you'd like to see more quilt pics from the Barn Buggy show, check out the long version of this post on my quilting blog, A Little Off Quilter.
