One of my favorite sites were the old farms along the way and the large colorful "quilts" that hung from them. I mean seriously...my two loves quilts + old barns together? Of course I fell in love with this movement!
When we passed through Iowa I asked what they were and found the local area painted and decorated their barns to participate in a visitor's tour of the local farms. People would find a quilt block that symbolized their family...an old quilt that grandma had made or one that had been passed down over the years, and painted it on wood to hang from their barns.
They were so colorful set across the green fields ...I went crazy for them and decided when I came home that I wanted to make one for our home.
This week I will be at the Beehive Bazaar selling a "few" of my favorite boards. All of them hand painted, one of a kind originals...meaning no two are the same. If you are in the Provo, Utah area this weekend, you should stop by. There is a new location, the food truck roundup on Thursday night, and tons of original items from some of the most unique designers around!
