On a hot & humid Friday, Aug. 1, thirty-one travelers ventured from Austin, MN in order to discover the Barn Quilts of Grundy County.  Thanks to Evie’s Travels, our guests had a day full of activities and barn quilt sight-seeing in Grundy County.  We all browsed through a quilt show in Wellsburg, ate lunch at Carol’s Restaurant, Bakery & Inn in Conrad, viewed hundreds of bolts of fabric in the Conrad General Store (the county’s only quilt shop), walked through the gorgeous Bethany Bible Garden in Grundy Center, and had an ice cream treat at the Fountain on Main in Reinbeck. 
Along with these stops, they enjoyed shopping at the many great specialty shops around Grundy County.  That is something every retailer and shopper should be proud of, that many regard Grundy County as a great shopping experience.  I do believe we all had a fun-filled day, although hot, traveling the countryside. 

Here are a few pictures from our day:
