My friend Shelley sent a whole mass of photos that she took of Barn Quilts while traveling through Nova Scotia, Canada!
I love Barn Quilts wherever I can find them – we saw several while driving through Iowa a couple of weeks ago, and my own area of the Blue Ridge Mountains are also a haven for barn blocks found not only on barns, but houses, sheds, garages…I love seeing them!
Hi Bonnie,Of COURSE we would like to see!
We're in Nova Scotia visiting family and got to travel along a very quiet and sparsely populated highway through some farm land. There were 15 barn quilts placed along what was called the Stewiacke Valley Barn Quilt Trail. They were really neat to see. They have a facebook page with some photos of how the "quilts" were constructed. We could get closer to some than to others.
Thought you might like to see.
And I’m so happy that I can share them with you too!
A horse is a horse, of course of course!
This is a block I did for a previous Addicted to Scraps column! It’s still begging to be made into a REAL quilt…..when will I find time?
Donkey! So cute!
I love how barns change from area to area..the shingles on this one add so much rustic texture!
Broken Star! So great!
Dresden plate. Look at that view!
More horsing around!
Hey Ma! There’s a Hole in the Barn Door!
More Dresden love on a very weathered barn.
If only this barn could talk!
Framed Nine Patch!
Tulips all in a row!
Each one of these Barn Blocks made me smile! I hope they did you too!
Thanks for sharing a bit of your vacation with us, Shelley!
I’m back home again – we left the cabin at 7am and made it home just a bit ago. I’ve got 3 days of desk duty ahead of me, so I am really looking forward to some sewing time during Quilt-Cam tomorrow night! 9pm Eastern!
Happy Monday, Everyone!
