    Barn Quilt

    Shawano county in Wisconsin is well known for having over 300 barn quilts. I decided to make one and donate it to Pathways. They sponsor an annual Bike the Barns trail ride in September. They will raffel it off. The pattern is from Lori Holt.

    Really like your barn quilt, hope it brings in lots of money. My husband and I went for a ride and saw most of the barn quilts in Shawano county. It was a lot of fun looking for them. It ended up he would spot them before I did which I didn't appreciate lol.

    Beautiful. I would love to hang a barn quilt on the front of my garage since I don't have a barn. I am looking for the right one. Our guild last night just voted to have someone come to show us how to make our own barn quilts. We will make one 2 feet x 2 feet. I can't wait. But it isn't until next July.

    We came thru Shawano County last year and were blown away by all the barn quilts. Good thing I wasn't driving as I would of been doing more looking than driving - would not have been good. If you have a chance, it makes a great road trip.

    skirar, where can I find information on the location of where these barns are located. Is there a route one can take with the car. I would love to see these barns.

    Wonderful quilt. There is so much 'gaze at and interesting design' in your quilt. It is just perfect for the raffle project. Hope it raises the barn roof with success.

    http://www.shawanocountry.com/barn-quilts/. Try this. If you visit, check out the chamber of commerce for a map. It is easily driven. Beautiful in the fall.
