have y'all heard of the ohio outdoor quilt festival?
basically, it's a quilt show held at an elk farm here in ohio.
they have hundreds of quilts hanging on the barns and on the fences.
it's one of my favorite ways to see quilts displayed.

i entered a few quilts into the show in 2009.
(click HERE to see my pics from the 2009 show.)
i actually won a gold medal that year for the jurist award.
and the medal still hangs in my quilty room.

i missed the 2010 show because i was SUPER pregnant with miss lindsey.
the 2011 show was cancelled due to a family sickness.
so, when i saw that the show was back on this year, i made plans to enter.

well, this past weekend, the fam & i took a drive out to bonnie brae farm.
i entered 16 quilts in the show.
i'm excited to see my quilts hanging on barns.
the hubby is excited to eat elk.
it's what i like to call a win/win scenario.

the ohio outdoor quilt festival is this coming saturday.
so, if you're in or around northern ohio, i highly suggest you check it out.
oh, and say hi. i'd love to meet you.
and if you're not, i'll take some pics for you. promise.

quilt pictured = reverie.
pattern will be available august 2013.

xo, rachel

Pin It!

What a fun quilt show! I hope you enjoy yourselves :) I'm from Ohio as well... I moved to Chicago for my husbands job last year. I have a love/hate relationship with Chicago because my heart belongs in Ohio. We'll be back! So I'm enjoying the city life while we are here.

Do you go to the country living fair in Columbus?

Sounds like a good show but I'm too far away. Your quilt is gorgeous!

Karen said...

Oh, I wish I'd known about this sooner so I could have asked to be scheduled off work on Saturday. I'm in Dayton, so it would be a great day trip! I'm already looking forward to next year.

I love your quilt! I just noticed this farm is 15 minutes from where I grew up. Must plan my next trip home around this show (and the county fair).
