    While driving through Iowa on a family trip last summer, we saw two of these barn quilts and would have LOVED to see more!!! Next time, we'll take the WI route to MN (from SC). These are wonderful - thanks for the tour!

    what a beautiful Oregon star block, I think I'll do a barn quilt for over my garage doors.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    That's where I hung mine--on the garage - near the peak, right in the middle of the Capitol City of Minnesota - St. Paul. My mother is from Monroe, Wisconsin. Didn't know about the barn quilts there until I saw this!!!!!! I am going to make one for her - Card Tricks - her favorite block. I made one for my sister "Bear Tracks", for their lake home. They have bears on their property all the time. Hey, why can't we, in the city, have a barn quilt, too, right? I get a lot of compliments on it. My only problem is I can never remember the name of the block and I'll be darned if I'll take out a ladder and climb up and look at the back to see what the name is (at least I did that and date it)! Every quilter should have one on their home or garage so we get to know who you are!!!!! Edie

    My barn quilt that I painted is on the small building behind my house where I have my quilting machines.
    It's the picture on my avatar.

    I have a home in Shipshewana Indiana in the heart of Amish Country and there are barn quilts all around Shipshewana and throughout the area; on retail buildings, homes, etc. On the back roads I recently found an Amish shop that makes them for purchase. Since I am not very good at woodworking, I plan on purchasing one my next trip out.
    During the summer, Shipshewana offers a quilt garden tour that you can take; the quilted gardens are just beautiful!

    If you look towards the beginning of this thread, you'll see my barn quilt on my garage. Dave Snow made it. Type in Dave Snow barn quilts in your search engine and he'll pop up. He's very reasonable. There is a star for every state. Carol Doak has a paper piecing book with the 50 stars of each state. I got my star from that book. You can find your state by going to Google Pictures, I think that's what it's called. But you can find your state's star and use it. It's kind of cool to use your state's star!
