Carolina Lily, Ennice, North Carolina

There is no particular order to these barn quilts. There are 78 spread throughout Alleghany County according to the brochure. This is called Carolina Lily and is the largest barn quilt I've seen to date. It must measure 12' x 12', so think of all the work that went into this one.

But there was another barn on the property that had a little surprise and the 79th barn quilt. It isn't listed on the brochure, but if I were to give it a name, it would "A Basket of Yarn". It is much smaller, only 4' x 4'.

I got sidetracked by the hay bales in the barn - I am definitely turning into a farm girl! We haven't made any progress in creating our own barn quilt - perhaps it could be a project for over the winter! The first quilt is stunning, but the second one is very appealing too!

The second barn quilt is so different than what they usually look like, very interesting :-)
