When Jim and I first noticed a barn quilt while out taking a road-trip one day, I was intrigued and started looking up info on them. I discovered some lists of local barn quilts, and one of them was on a road I passed at least once a week. But I never noticed the barn itself, let alone a barn quilt.
It just goes to show how familiar things become unnoticeable. Once we knew of a possibility of another barn quilt, we went back to that road AND DROVE DOWN IT THREE TIMES before we saw it.
Here is a close-up of the quilt. Isn't it gorgeous?
I love the look of the weathered wood as a background for the quilt -- and I love the green field and trees as a background for the barn that has withstood the elements.
Someday, it will be green again!
