Barn Quilts

I have LONG been an admirer, and gazer, and stopper of traffic when I saw a Barn Quilt.  I just LOVE them.   I had told the boys - someday we are making one.

and then one day - I had a surprise!!


At our QOV Sew days - my group of Quilters presented me with a little gift!!

My Dear Connie's Husband made this!



I was quite speechless 
and shocked - 
I mean  - how did they know that I wanted one of these?

It is hung up on our red barn - and I think it is perfect!!

I see it every morning when I wake up, and when I walk dogs, and well - anytime I look out the window - it's the best view on the whole place!!!

Thank you Quilting Group
and Thank you Mr H - you are quite talented!!

( SO are all the Quilters!!!)
