Barn Quilt

On my way to my daughter's, I spied this barn with the bright barn quilt.  The quilt looks new and really stands out on this old barn.  The barn sure can use a paint job.


My mom has a quilt made with this pattern.  I believe it is called flower garden.

Thanks for stopping!  Have a great day.

See you next time

How nice is that Barn. Barb you find the unusual Barns things.


Great! Thumbs up for your find.

I found something unusual myself from a little help from my newspaper this morning.

For cat lovers.

You've introduced me to barn quilts with some previous photos and I decided to look up whether there are barn quilts in my province. It seems there are some. I may have to go on a little trip this spring or summer!

Elaine said...

What a bright splash of color on an otherwise gray day! I always think that if they're going to the trouble to put up a quilt square that they will take care of the barn.

I love the weathered look on the barn and the flower garden quilt
is so pretty against the gray...a picture, perfect, country postcard.

I love the quilt square on the barn - it must make a really beautiful quilt!

Sally in WA said...

Great find, Barb! As a quilter, I really like this one!

Carletta said...

A paint job would help preserve the wood but I do like the peeling paint look.
Love the quilt square!!

Annmarie Pipa said...

so lovely!!!

Leave It To Davis said...

I wonder where the decoration of barns with quilt patterns started. They sure do dress up a barn!

Karen said...

It's so bright and pretty against the white paint and snow! Beautiful! xx

Brian King said...

I like the fact the paint is faded! Beautiful barn! The quilt is a nice touch.

A beautiful quilt design. The colors are so vibrant. I use to collect ceramic plates that had different quilt patterns.

Marissa said...

Wow! I love it! I love all those bright, cheerful colors.

What a lovely barn that is and the quilt just pops right out at you.. I agree the barn could use a coat but the more I look at it the more I wonder if it's charm isn't in it's shabbiness..
Robyn :)

Debbie said...

oh barb, what a gorgeous place, you photographed it beautifully!!

the snow makes it exceptional!!

andrea@townandprairie said...

It could use some paint, but I really like the intensity of the saturated hues of the quilt against the weathered wood of the barn. Makes for a nice contrast!

eileeninmd said...

Looks to be a new addition? In any event, what a great find.

Elisabet said...

Hey Barb, thanks for visiting and following my blog! I love New England as well, we live in NH but I must confess I love Maine the most, lol!
I love those photos of that barn with the quilt and yes you are right - well, almost, the pattern is called grandmother's flower garden. :D
Looking forward to many more visits...
Hugs,

Great barn! That quilt square really pops out!

Here is my barn charm for this week;
Noteworthy Musings

Nancy said...

It is interesting that they would put that pretty new quilt square on that old barn...maybe they were just trying to dress her up a little......

It is a flower garden pattern and I have one that my grandmother made many years ago...

ImSoVintage said...

Love that quilt. Maybe adding the quilt was less expensive than painting the barn :)

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Good Morning Barb
and Greetings from Ireland

I just wanted to pop by and wish you
a very Happy St. Patrick's Day.

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!

Fiona
