The weather forecasters predicted a bright and sunny Saturday, so TB and I left early that morning to go up to the mountains and take pictures of the colorful leaves and any other interesting buildings and places we could find.
TB saw this barn quilt in her side view mirror as we were heading south on US Highway 221 towards West Jefferson. I would've never seen it unless I looked at the exact right moment in my rear view mirror. Since I was taking as many barn quilt pictures that I could find on this trip, I made an U-turn and back to Shatley Springs Road to take this picture.
I can't tell you the name of this pattern as this particular quilt is not noted on the Ashe County website which currently only lists 30 barn quilts. However the Ashe County Arts Council states in their latest newsletter that there are now more than 150 barn quilts in this county alone. Wish they and neighboring Alleghany County would get their act together and update their respective websites. It's delightful to come upon them accidentally, but I prefer mapping out my road trip beforehand.
