Continuing with Barn Quilts

This barn was interesting as it had 2 quilts.  One on the haymow door and a smaller one on a side addition.  Notice the old tractor out front.


A closer look



No quilts on this old barn.  It just happened to be on the same road as all the others.

Well I am torn- I love the quilt barns..but there is just something about the rusty old that I like, too. Hope it's not too cold where you are. We are just now topping over the freezing mark, thank goodness.

Great barn with two quilts...I like the design of that overhang and must point it out to my carpenter. The old barn is still beautiful in its old age.

Those are fabulous barn pictures. I just love the old tractor sitting outlined against the sky. And, the quilts.... my goodness, just perfect. But, that last shot... it's my favorite.

Thank goodness we don't have to choose just one photo to enjoy!

LV said...

You found some really great barns in a rubbish state.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

That is the prettiest quilt barn yet. And I love the old run down one - I'm always glad when someone saves a barn by keeping it alive with a photo.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Another of my favorites...I'm always on the lookout for new ones along that stretch of road!

Brian King said...

That's fantastic! Great quilt on that one! The second barn is awesome!

Linda said...

Those are wonderful!

Both barns are lovely in their own way

Cranberry Morning said...

I like the barn quilts, but even better, I love that third photo - times past. Beautiful photos!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

that first barn is magnificent! I've thought about a barn quilt but it's not to be here, perhaps next place.

EG CameraGirl said...

The shape of the roof is so attractive! And of course I love the barn quilts too.

annepayne said...

That Barn Quilt is something! And the lower barn is spectacular with the silo. Great images, Barb.

Judy said...

I wonder if that old barn is still in use... There is no roof on the silo!

Tanya Breese said...

oh i love both of them!!

Bethany Carson said...

I do like to see barn quilts! They're quite popular in my neck of the woods!

Miss Kitty said...

Great photos! That first barn looks just massive and like it is still in use. The barn quilt with the names on looks very folk-artsy-ish. Thanks for sharing these photos with us!

Buttons said...

LOVE the two quilts barn but I have a special spot in my heart for those old neglected barns. Great shots. Hug B

Cattails said...

I love these, Barb. Great captures. Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving week. Mildred

Roan said...

I love them both! I like seeing the barn quilts. We have so few around here. The last barn is awesome! I'm so sorry for not getting around sooner. It's been a sad week with a death in our family. Not much time for blogging.

Gail Dixon said...

Those barn quilts are so unique and beautiful! I didn't even know about them until seeing people blog about them. That's what I love about blogging. Always learning something new. Hope you have a very nice Thanksgiving!

Amy Burzese said...

So many quilt barns! The second one is oh, so charming too. Just the right amount of decay.

Far Side of Fifty said...
