“Barn Quilts” are becoming very popular and there are many local barns sporting these patchwork adornments.
Quite a few have been made by my friend K. (I have my order in for a Mariner’s Compass Star to go up on the shed).
So a group of friends from my Extension Homemakers club had lunch out, then took a summer drive into the country to look at a few of the barns with K’s quilt blocks on them.
Isn’t this one a show stopper?! Ten quilt blocks. (Please excuse the haze from our Southern humidty!)
K arranged that we would be able to drive right up to them in our nice air conditioned cars. As you can see from the glare off the tin roof – the sun was brutal that day.
Love this old barn! It is showing some damage from a recent storm.
The bold colors are fantastic.
I really like the patriotic ones too.
Not all ‘barns’ are big. This tractor shed has its own smaller quilt block.
But it’s the big ones that really shine.
