I kept driving past this beautiful old barn thinking it would make a great photo quilt. Finally one day, when I was in a rush, my guardian angel made me stop. I started to photograph it and kept seeing this old fence post out of the corner of my eye. So I stooped down and got the fence post and the barbed wire in the photo.
When I drove past the next week, the barn was being torn down.
The quilt photo is composed of four sheet of fabric that had portions of the photo printed on them.
A first copy of this quilt was auctioned to raise money for a new cancer center in the local Richland Center Hospital. I was told it raised $375.
Butterflies and birds were included in the border
Monofiliment thread was used to quilt the photo except for the barbed wire. I used two shades of grey for that. If you look at the post you will see a line across it. That is the seam of the parts of the photo being sewn together
