Barn Quilts - the best part of building the barn quilt is how excited my husband is about helping with this. He will retire in January. (I'll give him a little down time) and then we can start building and painting. I have the pattern narrowed down to do designs. I will have an instillation crew prepared for our arrival and then just take my dad for a drive out to the farm that day. Did I mention he is 90? and still very active. We have seen barn quilts in Iowa, Kentucky, Tennesse and Indiana when visiting relatives earlier this year. A woman's work belongs beside the man's work. It was my grandmother's quilts that kept me warm in the winter in a house with no heat upstairs. What a great tribute!
