|Eureka Montana Quilt Show
August 6, 2016
|My poor husband was totally upstaged this year
- the Eureka quilt show landed on the same day as his birthday. His
birthday celebrations had to wait until the show shut down! This is
a huge event in the area, a really fantastic quilt show. This year
there were just under 700 quilts on display all over the town. I
tried to take a picture of every one, but don't worry, I didn't put that
many on this page!

Gran (Dad's mom) about 30 years ago. It is a work of art.
