    Cool! I've been thinking of getting my husband to help me paint one for our house in the woods.

    Also, I just saw that The Wisconsin State Journal (published in Madison WI) has a feature about barn quilts on its website.

    Those are very pretty, thanks for sharing them. Everyone must admit that they are pretty and show stopping. I just wish I had a barn to put one on. I've been thinking of putting one on my lawn mower garage.

    I'm putting some on a boring exterior wall of our house. I have to wait a bit though, my husband is doing them for me and he's been working a 6 day week. Love these barn quilts!

    the local quilt guild had a quilt show here in Quincy Ca. and they gave out a brochure showing them and giving directions and they had it in the paper. i sure hope they do a follow up as they add more. a lot of people are putting smaller ones on their patios and in their houses. my sister and i plan on putting them on our homes.
