After admiring the Turkey Tracks quilt at the Robert Allen barn, it was on to the next destination, the Wilson Friday barn.
This was really way out in the country, requiring even more brake hitting and U-turning. At this point after trying to read the tiny road names on the signs, I decided that I wanted to become dictator of the North Carolina Department of Transportation and make all the print on the signs LARGE so that they are easy to read from a distance, not when you get right up on them and it becomes impossible to stop and turn without becoming a stunt driver.
This is the next barn, way out in the county but in a lovely wooded area.
Wilson Friday Barn features a quilt “Eight-Pointed Star Flowers” and was made by Louisa Dacons Cass, c. 1890-1900, in Iredell County. The quilt currently is owned by the maker’s grandson, David Redmond and family of Statesville.
