Barn Quilts (a little diversion)
I am in Wisconsin for one more day and then on Monday I will fly back to Boston. Saturday I worked on a big project here at the B & B. It was hot and muggy and I didn't even go outside! On Friday, we did have a chance to get out and about a bit and I saw some of these interesting barn quilts.
The Green Country Barn Quilt trail includes at least 100 sites. I wonder how long it would take to go to see them all? We saw several in our travels and I think it would be great for my sister and brother-in-law to have one on their barn. It would be a lot of fun to create the quilt and paint it.
The mission of the barn quilt project as found on their website is "to promote and celebrate the visual arts through the combination of the many unique barns in our county that have played an important role in our economy through the generations and the warmth, beauty and artistic expression of quilts"
You can find out more about the barn quilts when you visit the website by clicking HERE.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend - I have lots more to share from CHA and I hope to be able to edit and post some more photos for Monday.
