This is about the time JG and I go to the national quilt show in Paducah, KY. Much to our frustration, it was canceled for the second year thanks to a certain virus. We decided to do a quilt related event of our own. Yesterday we drove part of the the Barn Quilt Trail of Gibson County, IN.
Photos in no order – Enjoy the Barn Quilts:
We started at her home in Princeton, IN and just loosely followed state roads 64 and 65. Some of the barn quilts we really had to look for, and some were very obvious. They were located on barns, businesses, a covered bridge, houses, and gardens.
It was a beautiful day. All kinds of flowers blooming, farmers working in fields, and the perfect temperature of this kind of excursion. Great way to spend the day.
I am glad to see these wonderful pieces of art turning up in so many places. They are fun to look for as I drive around my own area. And to have so many in one area like this county is super fun as a quilter. Can I identify the block? Is the block a favorite of the structure owner or something that was easy to paint?
JG and I did not see anywhere close to all of them as we only drove one area of the Barn Quilt Trail of Gibson County. We thought we would try another area sometime in the future.
And no quilt related trip would be complete without fabric, right? On Saturday it was pouring down rain so we went to Daviess County, IN to visit two quilt shops we were familiar with: The Stitching Post and Wagler’s Quilts.
We found fabric “we just had to have” and spent more than we should have. However, if we had been shopping at the vendors at the quilt show in Paducah we would have spent far more. A good use of a rainy day since we could not do the Barn Quilt Trail of Gibson County, Indiana.
