Stars in Flight Barn Quilt, Hamptonville, North Carolina

A new quilt trail to explore just 50 miles from Greensboro in Yadkin County which is where I went today, the first sunny weekend day in (it seemed) forever. The Yadkin Arts Council put out a brochure earlier this year showing 25 barn quilts, but the project has proved to be so popular that a Facebook page has been set up to highlight the new ones that didn't make it on to the brochure.

Here is their page for those who might be interested in seeing new quilts: Yadkin Quilt Trail.

And a great example of ingenuity at work - if you don't have a barn for your quilt, then use the next best thing - an abandoned tobacco shed! This particular pattern is called Stars in Flight.

I was unaware of that aspect! How sad.
