Barn Quilt on Rockford Road in Stokes County, NC.

Since I had the day off from work, TB and I decided to take a day trip while the weather was still nice (they are predicting rain for tomorrow). We decided to take the back roads through the northern part of the Piedmont (as the central part of North Carolina is called) to Rockford where a famous general store is located.

On the turn-off to Rockford, lo and behold, a barn quilt. Again, like in Chatham County, there is no dedicated barn quilt trail unlike the one we drove in Alexander County. My very uneducated guess is that the owner may have seen the barn quilts in the mountains or read about them and then did his or her own quilt. Whatever the idea behind this, it was a very nice surprise to see on our road trip today.

Anne: Now that would be a neat thing to see there in Scotland. And as you can see, it doesn't have to be part of trail. This one was way out in the middle of nowhere.

Anyes: And a very happy 2011 to you and your family. Thank you too for your lovely blog.
