Barn Quilts

Last Fall Tim and I took the backroads home from his Mom's and happened across the Barn Quilts of Sac County. A few weeks ago, as we were leaving Tim's moms house, Tim suggested we take the route home that goes through Sac County and photograph some of the barn quits.

Traveling south from Tim's moms, internet service is sketchy . I did my best to map out a route to find the barn quilts, suggesting to Tim next time we should map it out in advance. I am the planner, he's the spur of the moment guy.

Here's six of the ten barns we photographed. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

  1. These are so nice! I had never heard of barn quilts before, but I love them! Have a great day! Lottie

  2. Never heard of Barn quilts either, no barns here in suburbia! Those are so nice, love the quilts and the barns! The back roads trip home looks like it's a very scenic and pretty drive!

  3. How neat! I have never heard of such a thing but I can tell you that if my Dad were still alive he'd be dragging my Mom all over that route to see those barn quilts. Beautiful!

  4. Awesome! I have always wanted to do paintings of barns with Van Gogh!

  5. WOW! I have never seen anything like this before. They are so cool!! Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Wow, incredible. What an interesting stretch of road.

  7. Love seeing these barns and the quilt patterns each one displays. Fun getting to learn more about Nebraska. I know very little but that my parents were married in Kearney :)
