Quilt Trail

There is a Quilt Trail display across surrounding counties in the area I live...it makes for such a nice ride. The Quilts I am showing you today is within a 15 mile radius of my home.
The quilt squares are attached to new and old barns. In the fields surrounding the barns there are horses and cows grazing.
I took this picture last fall ...see the tobacco hanging in it.
I have seen the squares attached to homes, fences, and mounted on post in the yard.

This is a closer view of the barn I posted yesterday...notice a whole quilt was painted on it. Look at the detail painted in each square. This fall dh and I are planning to take a ride in the surrounding area and I will share those with you too.

I'm off to yard sales this morning....Have a great weekend

Wow, what great eye candy you get to see everyday! There is a blog, but I can't remember which one, where she made one (wood) and hung it on her front porch, so neat.
I hope you find alot of goodies this morning.

I absolutely LOVE "quilt barns." One of these days, we are going to paint our own barn! :-) We have a few in our area, but what I enjoy most is seeing them while taking a road trip to the southern part of our State in autumn. Thank you for sharing your photos~ they are lovely, as is your blog!

Oh you lucky girl! I have always wanted to drive the Quilt Trail. Kentucky is the most perfect place for it. Such history & culture.

Beautiful photos of the barns in your area. My friend has the first barn quilt in Illinois, and hopes it will inspire others.
