Quilts On The Lawn

Gina and I left home at a very early hour—just after 7am headed to Bozeman to meet my quilting friends for a day of quilt show fun.  The Gang

Our first stop was the Bozeman Farmer’s Market,Bozeman Farmers Market which was just awesome!  Tons of fresh veggies, lots of pottery, jewelry and food items.  Gina and I had to make two trips to the car to unload our purchases.  We came home with corn, tomatoes, cantaloupe, fresh bread, etc! 

Next stop was the Emerson Center for the annual Quilts On The Lawn quilt show--A Perfect Setting most of the quilts are displayed outside on racks and the fences surrounding the grounds.  It was a beautiful display in a perfect setting.Angles of Love This little quilt was one of my favorites.  Mary doesn't want her picture taken Guess Mary P didn’t want her photo taken!

The heat was starting to get to all of us so off we went to find lunch.  Mary F. had researched and chosen a restaurant called Cat’s Eye—it was delicious and the decor was fun and eclectic.  The restroom signs said—“Litter Boxes” with an arrow pointing in the right direction.

After lunch the rest of the gang headed off to another quilt store and Gina and I decided to head to Wal Mart.  We picked up a prescription for Gina and other things for both of us.  I found some beautiful new rugs for the motorhome, Gina got a griddle to make pancakes—as we were filling our common basket all of a sudden I remembered, “Gina, we’ve got to stop shopping—we are in the convertible!!”  We did manage to stuff it all in, Gina had to hold the griddle on the way home!

Once again Rollie treated us to a delicious dinner, baby back ribs.  We had Park City corn on the cob and coleslaw—outstanding.  After dinner we sat on the deck visiting until the day just began to lose light and I suggested we go over to the far gulch and watch to see if we could spot a bear.  We watched and watched, no bear.  Just when we are getting ready to leave, Mr. Retired Navy says—”this is like looking for a submarine in the whole ocean!”

I so thoroughly enjoyed my day with Gina!  Mike and Rollie got the dash in the motorhome put back together and we are tentatively planning a little trip over to Yellowstone next week. 


  1. Sounds like a great day! I bet those quilts were just beautiful. I can't wait to get to that area and purchase something unique for our bed. I am tired of the box store stuff.
    The fruits and vegetables sound great....nothing better tasting or better for you. :-)

  2. Sounds like a wonderful time! Homemade quilts are such a priceless treasure. I've only made one but hope to make more when I'm on the road.

  3. First - I so enjoy your blog! I can't believe I missed the quilt show here yesterday. We were busy making new slide awnings and I totally forgot. Thanks for the pictures. It looked like it might have been smaller than previous years, but the quilts sure look good. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures and the fun of your day.

  4. OH what a fun day! And to top it off by not having to cook when you got home. What a treat!
