    I have seen a couple in Washington, but can't remember where they are, except the Buggy Barn has one of course! I want to put one on my house but DH thinks I am crazy. Has anyone seen one on a house anywhere?[/quote

    I live on the Old Mission Peninsula and we have about 12 Barn quilts. Haven't found all of them yet. Still trying.The Traverse City Chamber put out a brochure and their locations.

    I love looking for them and have my Brother and SIL (who drive from Pennsylvania to Lexington, Ky alot) on the lookout. They send me cell phone pics when they find them.

    That's just a great pic anyway. I love taking pics of old barns. That pic there would make a great quilt!

    You can do just that. I don't know about other states, but Kentucky does have the maps available. Google Kentucky Barn Quilts and it will take you to a site where the maps are available. Hubs and I do it often!!

    Wondering if other states might not have maps too. Try googling them as well. Good Luck!

    There are hundreds of barn quilts in the eastern part of Kentucky; especially! They should be able to find many of them. Tell them to google Kentucky Barn quilts for maps of their locations.

    I love seeing barn quilts. One day my husband and I went on a barn quilt tour and it took us on some roads we didn't know existed.

    Oh, I bet you have a bunch in Ohio. That's where they originated.

    I have heard of the barn quilts, and I have seen pics of barn quilts, but have yet to see on in person. No such thing yet up here !!! I may have to make a trip down north to see one in person. Very lovely picture, thanks for posting. Auntie B from Saskatchewan, Canada.
