Good-by Blairmore......Hello..BUGGY BARN!!!!!

Yesterday we said good-bye to my daughter and my new son-in-law (did I mention what a sweetie he is?.....thought so...) For a change of scenery, we decided to go home through the USA so the first night we got as far as Spokane, Washington. Scenery wasn't the only thing on my mind-I discovered the the Buggy Barn Quilt Shop is in Reardan, a small town just outside Spokane!! Just before you get to the town of Reardan there is a small sign (which we almost missed!!) that said Buggy Barn turn right. So we ventured down a gravel road which looked like it was leading to flat prairie, farmland.....is this the right road? Finally we saw a sign and a beautiful old farm. The Buggy Barn is located in a small but quaint barn on this gorgeous old farm. Inside it is very small and packed to the rafters.....literally....there are quilts tacked to the roof! I loved it and the staff was VERY friendly. One of the ladies told me to use the bathroom before I left. I thought at the time that it was an odd thing to say but later discovered that they keep the sales stuff in the bathroom!!! They also let me take as many pictures as I wanted. If you are ever in this area make sure you stop in as it worth a look....just make sure to take you credit/debit card!



This is the lovely old farm that I was telling you about. The Buggy Barn is located straight down this road.





I loved this quilt as it was a mix of flannels with wool felt flowers appliqued on. Very pretty.



Tons of wool felt!



I bought this pattern for a tree skirt last Christmas and to see it made up makes me want to whip it up tomorrow! Love it!



Another quilt that I liked- a wonky log cabin with HUGE flowers appliqued on. Very pretty!



It took me about 15 minutes to catch my breath!!! Talk about eye candy!




Look at the ceiling!!!



You can see many of these quilts on their website.




My friend, Claire is making the dog with a bone quilt ( in the corner) for her son. Too cute!




Good-bye Buggy Barn....till we meet again.......Stay tuned for tomorrow and I will show you what I bought.....!!!

What a fantastic shop. I bet you spent hours in there, just looking at the quilts? I am looking forward to seeing what you bought now.

I love the hunt of a quilt shop. WOW!!! They need a picnic table outside so you can eat to gain strength for the second go round!

Lucky you. What a find in that shop. I have ordered from them but have never visited the shop. Love their patterns. I can't wait to see your goodies.
