Barn quilts

I haven't posted a photo of a barn in ages.  I haven't even been out taking pictures of any in this cold snowy weather.  But when I was at my daughter's for Thanksgiving I found these 3 with barn quilts.







I'll be sharing these with Rurality Blog Hop

Rurality Blog Hop #49

Sorry I haven't been around to visit all of you lately.  I'm trying to stay off this computer so I can keep focused on going through my mom's things and cleaning out.  While looking for a bill for her taxes, I started going through my filing cabinet.  I'm happy to say that I found the bill and have cleaned out several file folders.

Thanks for stopping by and all your kind comments on the Frozen Falls.
Until Next Time
Barb

Fun barn finds, Barb! Both the barns and quilt blocks are neat.

Good Luck as your declutter. I am a firm believer that outer order creates inner peace.

I love these barns! The chippy paint and the barn quilts make them so beautiful. Good luck with cleaning!

It must be wonderful to come across such a barn. I've never seen a quilt barn. They are beautiful!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love seeing your quilt barns, Barb. I really miss the Barn Charm meme, but I'll have to say that I'm glad I'm not having to get out and about snapping barn shots these winter days! Take care!

Judy said...

I love them all but that second one really catches my eye.

Buttons said...

Oh Barb I understand about going through the things you have to go through hugs not an easy thing.
LOVE the barn quilts I need one of those for the wedding:) Hug B

Nice finds - I love the middle one. It's good that you're spending time sorting through things, and that you found the bill you were looking for. Sorting and organizing always makes me feel better about just about everything. Take care!

Pamela Gordon said...

These are really beautiful barns and barn quilts. Good for you sticking to staying off the computer, Barb. You are getting a lot accomplished and cleaning out files is a good job done too. Take care. Pam

Sorry I typed white snow in my comment, but i wanted to say white sky. The barns look really beautiful against the moody weather. And i love the desaturated look.

Those quilts on the barns are so charming!! Oh my goodness, they are truly wonderful. I don't blame you for not getting out in the cold for photos; I've got the same issue. Take care.

I adore these barns, especially #2.

There was a few quilt barns we saw driving the back roads of Ohio a few years back,,,but I cannot remember where. Awesome barn quilts you captured! Janice

Liz said...

I think these barn quilts are such a unique way to put a decorating touch on he barn. My FIL was starting one, I will have to ask if he ever finished it. Good luck with the taxes!

My Little Home and Garden said...

The barn quilts really dress up the structures, Barb. Good Luck sorting out all the paperwork.

Vee said...

Nothing happening at my place...no worries. I love that second photo...the barn is so quaint.

Carletta said...

Quaint and delightful!
That second one needs to be on my property. :)

amanda | wildly simple said...

These are great!
I REALLY love the second one, though. Are they all located in southern MN?
I have a friend who did a little barn quilt tour down the eastern side of the state into Iowa. So cool!

Jacquelineand.... said...

I love these Barb, and they may even help me persuade the Great Scot to put a barn quilt on our pole barn!

Lynn said...

Glad you are making headway with your chores. And these are great barns and decorating with imagines of quilts is impressive, is this a certain group of people that decorate their barns like this?

HOOTIN ANNI said...

The images of the barns you share have so much charm!! Can't help it that a very nostalgic feeling came over me.

Beautiful.

Tanya Breese said...

ladyfi said...

Rose said...

Wow, I love all three barn/barn quilts. But can you imagine the time it took to do that last one!

I wonder if I stayed off the computer if I would get more done???

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

I've never seen barn quilts before. Those are all so beautiful.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Thanks for sharing. I have never in my life seen a barn quilt and I would love to.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Oh gosh I love all three- but that middle one is just beautiful!

Haddock said...

Nice old barns.
Was wondering about the barn quilt. Why is it on display at the barn?

We have quilt barns around here too, love seeing them. Those are beauties. Good luck with the filing and cleaning out.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Barb;
Oh, I've never seen the quilt outside of the barn. How interesting♡♡♡

PS> Thank you very much for stopping by. My used to be bank clerk husband had filing my late (last year) father's tax return ready. And I still have a big job for his empty house(^^;)

Lots of Love and Hugs, xoxo Miyako*

Marie said...

The barns are awesome, and those quilt designs on them are so unique. LOVE this!

I'd love to make one for one of our barns. You've given me some inspiration Barb. xo

You haven't posted anything new but I wanted to come by and wish you a belated Happy Birthday!
Hope all is well with you!

I'm glad I got to enjoy these images again. Love these.

Jeanne said...

I have never seen or heard of a barn quilt, but it does look so lovely. Bet those quilts don't last too long though out there in the weather. Love how they look though.

I love to see quilts on barns! Great photos! :)
