I've been wanting to share these photos of our quilt show this August. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what we do, every year, the last weekend in August, my sister Pam and I have an outdoor quilt show. It started 14 years ago after our first year in business as a way to say thank you to all of you who supported us in our endeavor to open a quilt shop in a location that has been descirbed by some as the middle of nowhere, the outback of beyond, or, in our opinion, the heart of God's country! It use to be just our husbands and mother helping, and we'd hang quilts on clotheslines up the lane and over the fence. The quilts are always so pretty hanging outside, blowing in the breeze...now we've grown, added more clothesline, more buildings and fence, and thank goodness our kids and grandkids have grown, too, since they now get up in the predawn darkness to help hang quilts by the light of our high-beam headlights! Thanks to all who share their quilts! And remember, it's never too early to get started on your quilts for next year; our 15th anniversay! Can you believe it? So mark your calendar: August 27 & 28, 2011. Happy Quilting!

of the big barn. We let him hang it the day
before when it's light out (that's why he's smiling!)
