Never mind the quilt, I want that house!! I haven't seen that block before - I'll need to see if it is in any of my books.
I love barns; mostly probably of what they represent in ways of rural life, but also because they are endangered, at least here in Norway. Barn quilts are new to me, we don't have them. Except from their obvious beauty, do they serve some purpose? (I'm learning things already - love that!)
Anne: I'm hoping you got my email with the quilt block link.Lilli: I will send you an email with a couple of links to our barn quilt trails here in our mountains (there are several trails). Perhaps you could get someting similar started there in Norway. I'm trying to convince Anne (above) to start one in Scotland.
Lilli: Here is a link to the barn quilts of Western North Carolina (the photos I took this week are not part of this particular trail). There is a lot of information about the barn quilts and how and why the trails got started:http://www.quilttrailswnc.org/I have a lot more information and contacts if you want to email me:k.e.gates(at)gmail.com
Karen, lovely to hear from you! Looking forward to catching up with your interesting posts.
I'm in the queue for the house, too. No deal? OK, just the paint then. Love that blue.
Val: So glad to have you back.Di: I think the style of the house is just so evocative. We would have never seen it if it weren't for the barn quilt as it was way off the beaten track down a gravel road.
