When Lenny and I traveled to Fort Gordon, Georgia, for the birth of our granddaughters, we took a slight detour in southern Ohio through Rio Grande, stopping at The Bob Evans Farm. We didn’t tour the barns or grounds, but simply stopped (in the pouring rain) to enjoy a sit-down dinner. Our dinner was really tasty and our service was great, by the way!

2015 Quilt Show
On our way out of the restaurant, I noticed a flyer advertising the “Quilt Show“:
More than 54 quilters from Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana have competed for more than $4,000 in prize monies. Quilts were judged by a National Quilting Association certified judge, who evaluated quilt-making techniques as well as design and overall appearance. Full size quilts, wall hangings, and “Christmas in July” entries will be exhibited, representing techniques such as hand piecing, machine piecing, paper piecing, hand quilting, machine quilting, applique and embroidery. The quilt show will be showcased in the Bob Evans Farm Event Barn from June 21 to July 31, 2014, from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for children 6-12 and ages 5 and under are free.

Well, I hope you get a chance, or take the opportunity to go to the Quilt Show. If nothing else, it’s a pretty drive through the country.
