my life has been opened up to the wonderful world of barn quilts.
i had never heard of barn quilts until i read about them here today.
i know...where have i been?
i have always had a thing for american barns, ever since i was old enough to hop across the ocean to visit my family in connecticut but i have never come across barn quilts there.
having flicked over to the barn quilt trail website (yes there is such a thing) i did in fact see that nowhere in CT was registered on the barn quilt trail.
this made me relieved that i hadn't been going around there with my eyes shut but saddened that i will have to go further afield to find some.
i will however be rectifying the lack of barn quilts in CT by painting one on my aunt's barn next time i am there...
american barns are so evocative and full of life and by painting a quilt on one of the walls just adds to this.
i've posted a few of my favourite barn quilt photos here and have started a new pinterest board where there are more. i know...obsessed.
there is even a book on barn quilts...that's obviously now on my wishlist.
the question is was i on my own here with my ignorance of barn quilts or have i enlightened a few more of you too?
do share you favourite barn quilt photo if you have one.
