Quilt Show

This was to have been our hottest day of the year and I think it might have been but this afternoon the thunder and lightening arrived and it is significantly cooler.

I decided to take in a quilt show today, a highly advertised one at Quilting in the Country in Bozeman, MT. The quilt shop is located in a gorgeous setting among old buildings and barns on a former dairy farm. There are flower and vegetable gardens everywhere, large old cottonwood trees and green lawns. The fabric and other quilting items are located in two different buildings. But--the quilt show was a disappointment--it was advertised as having 500+ quilts on display, classes and vendors. There might have been 20 quilts on display outside of the samples the store had made up and there were maybe 2-3 vendors and 1-2 classes going on.

A stop at Petsmart and Costco and I was headed home. We finished loading the RV, gave Emmi a bath and had a quick supper.

This plaque was hanging on one of the porches at the quilt show.

Emmi and her duck in the background. She wouldn't be still enough for me to get a photo of her with the duck in her mouth, the duck is almost as big as she is although Emmi is growing by leaps and bounds.


  1. The main quilt show is no longer held at the Quilting in the Country site. It is now on the lawn of the Emerson Art Center and is titled "Quilting on the Lawn". There were over 450 quilts outside, 50+ antique quilts inside and about 30 vendors. Classes were held yesterday at the Emerson as well as the QITC site. The Quilting in the Country story has a small display only on the quilt day. I am so sorry you were not here - it was magnificent. Please plan to come again next year - would love to meet you.
