Boerne Texas Outdoor Quilt Show
Chances are, you haven’t heard of Boerne, Texas. (Pronounced Burn-eee, if you were wondering.)
It is a small town, northwest of San Antonio, along highway I-10. It is Texas Hill Country, peaceful, historic, and local. The first weekend in May, they transform their historic downtown square and downtown streets to an outdoor quilt event.
Quilts are along the downtown “square” and vintage quilts were laid out in the shade, on a bed, in the downtown gazebo.
They had quilts lining their courthouse and library. You could see the fronts and backs of the quilts and with the tiniest wind, the quilts would dance a bit.
Quilts were strung between businesses along the main street. Those main street shops are wonderful. Locally owned, chef-owned and independent. Love that!
They even had quilts for sale at the event and quilty-crafty vendors in the center of the downtown square.
The best part? San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild had a table off to the side of the event. We got to chat with other quilty folks. Our table was in the shade on the breezy 70*F day. So wonderful.
I cannot wait ’til next year’s show.
