Quilts in the Country, a quilt show and garden walk held Saturday, July 19th at the home of Doug and Teri Wolfe was an absolute feast for the eyes.  Around 150 handmade quilts produced by family members and friends were displayed on fences, bed frames and throughout the artistically groomed acreage grounds and gardens.  This was the third year for the show which is free and open to the public. The Wolfe home is located on County road 21 near the southern edge of  Washington County.

  1. Hi From Wakefield Nebraska. Eileen Petit. I am that crazy lady that gave you a bottle of wine. I came with Jackie Jensen.. I have located a sewing machine like you had that was made into a tractor. Do you have the name of the fellow that made that tractor out of a sewing machine? I would like to donate it to you or him as that is so amazing. Sincerely Eileen Petie
