Earlier this month I made a trip to Kentucky to visit an aunt and cousin. I had read about old barns with quilts painted on them near the area I was visiting. (also in Tennesse and Ohio)
On the way from the airport to an area near Lexington, I spotted this one. You would not believe what my cousin went through backing up on the freeway so I could get this shot. Because of the fall color, it is my favorite. There is a one hundred and forty mile trail in Owen County, KY with over 150 barns with painted quilts on them. Some are far away from the road and hard to spot, but someday when I learn how to display more than one photo, I'll give you a few more.

I never knew about these wonderful barns with the quilt motifs painted on them. The photograph is lovely and I would like to see more.

Oh Beverly, this sounds like a road trip is in order for that 150 mile strip of quilt painted barns! You plan it, I'll hire the bus! When do we leave??

Welcome to blogland!

I loved that picture of the barn with quilt. We went through Kentucky a few years ago and I did see or even know about those or I would have sought them out. Wish I had seen them, but will certainly enjoy your pictures. Like your site and the dress is beautiful.. :)
