barns

When we were driving through Tillamook county last month I saw several barns and buildings with quilts on them. I posted about it, as I thought it was really neat to look at.

Has any read this book or seen any of the quilts on barns or buildings?

I love barn quilts. There are quite a few barn quilt trails around the country- we are actually planning to do one in our area within the next year. Our barn will be one of the first to be done. I am planning on something that incorporates tulips, and maybe a smaller pig-ish one on either side.

I haven't seen the book, but there are a number of barn quilts in eastern Iowa.

The barn quilts here are not painted directly on the barn, they are on plywood. Sizes range from 2 full sheets (8'x8') to half sheets (4'x4'). I've also seen some fences and little garden sheds with smaller. One nice thing about doing them that way - you don't need to be hanging on a ladder to work on them!

Got the book, but haven't been country driving due to the cost of gas!

We live near an "Academia Community" where the only thing close to quilts on a barn is the painting on the barn belonging to the parents of artist Rebecca Barker!

I love the barn quilts. We see quite a few of them in northern Wisconsin. They are so bright and cheerful.

We usually have Mail Pouch tobacco ads, except that now they're anti-tobacco ads on barns. It's kind of funny, actually.

I wonder if there are any DVD's out there showing tours of the barns and so forth. That would be fun to watch, especially if they tell how it was made, the chosen pattern and what it means to the family that put one up. This is something I would enjoy watching over and over.

Will this do?
