Barn Quilts - Door County

  In July of 2011, my husband and I went on a long weekend to Door County, WI. This was just a vacation, no real idea of finding quilts.  (Well, I am fibbing a bit, I had, of course, looked up quilt stores in Door County.)

We were driving around and I spied a barn quilt and then another!

Of course we had to find them all!

We did not have a map or the booklet like we had had in Kankakee so we only found six.  I hope we found them all!

Once again, I made them into note cards.

The outside of the card is the whole picture of the barn quilt.  On the inside I put a small version of the close up and tell where the barns are located.  And I put the name of the photographer, me!

 Here are the cases I made this year for the barn quilt note cards.  I showed them before when I was showing what I had made for Christmas presents but I hadn't shown pictures of the barn quilts.

I kept two sets of cards for me but no case.  Now I wish I had, it would be handy for coupons!

This is the last blog for this week, I am taking the day off tomorrow to celebrate my sister's birthday with her.  Yes, I know it is not a federal holiday but maybe it should be!

Enjoy the quilts around you and think how else you could enrich your life with them.
