Western Star Barn Quilt

One of the highlights of the summer was our Olie & Evie Barn Quilt Workshop in gorgeous Idaho.  We loaded up the trailer with barn quilts, patterns and our Prairie Paints and drove through the night to wake up in the beautiful farmland of western Idaho to join the loveliest group of ladies for a day of barn quilting!  As you browse through the pictures you will see why we love our traveling workshops.  The blessing of gathering and "quilting" together brings pure joy!   We are so thankful to Rhonda from Olie and Evie for inviting us to her beautiful shop and...
