Quilt Show in the Barn

Every year...Every other year??? I forget, but at least every other year a couple in our area does a quilt show in their barn.  And by barn I mean bigger then my house....and the doors are probably more expensive then my whole house!  It is a beautiful property down Walker Lane on 16 acres.  I dragged my sister Whit along for company.  There were some great quilts on display, and even better quilting.  A lot of my photos are close up to capture more of the quilting and less of the quilt.  I thought I would share a few of my favorites.

The BARN...

Some of the land around the barn

An actual goat in the barn...with the quilts

Love the fireworks in the quilting!

 Sampler quilt - how bright and cheery.  It was so much better in person!

 I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but the star centers were I Spy fabrics.  Cute and different from others I've seen.

 I have this pattern and have been wanting to make it for ages.  Love the small and large stars together.
 I bought the book with this pattern in it, just for this pattern.  I thought it could be my first applique project!

 I'm not sure what this pattern is, but I saw this a lot at the show in several different color ways.
 This is a a wheel pattern...can't remember the name.  Funny how Thelma was just talking about this pattern or one very similar to it the other day.  I had never seen the pattern before and now I've seen the quilt!  What a small world!
 Cute and simple.  Love the Christmas colors.

 I love the 25 patches how they are all done in 1 color way per block but then all mixed.  I don't know if I would have ever been daring enough to do something like this until I saw the quilt!

It was so much fun to see all the different quilts, and especially the quilting.  I hope they continue this tradition.  All proceeds go to a homeless shelter.  Its for a very good cause!  What a fun way to spend a few hours.
