Last week when we were on our way to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to visit our friend Pat, Ron decided to take a bit of a detour and go on some back road to avoid the construction on the highway around Green Bay, Wisconsin. We had driven only a short while, when we stumbled upon some barn quilts.
After we arrived home on Sunday, I checked to see if there was actually a Barn Quilt Trail in that area.
Much to my surprise, there was not only a trail, but it happens to be the largest trail.
|These first two, I have not been able to find the names of the patterns.|
|This one is called "BIKING IS LIFE". It is on the Lynch farm, in Bonduel, Wisc.|
|More barn quilts have been installed this year, and appear on another site list, that is not in the brochure|
This pattern I could not find, and I have no idea where we saw it..
|It is an interesting barn and great quilt.|
|Here is "ALL STAR ARRAY". It is on the Ebert family barn, in Bonduel.|
|One of the things we did see were quilts that looked similar to each other. This was one of them. I saw it on another barn, and had not realized it was considered a barn quilt, and that we were on a trail.|
|While driving we did come across this farmer with his rig plowing in the fields. We stopped for a while to watch how he was working the field. Very interesting.|
|Here is "SUNFLOWERS", at Windswept Acres in Cecil.|
|"IRIS RAINBOW" is on the reverse of the same barn at Windswept Acres, in Cecil.|
|"OLD GLORY CHEVRON" is on a barn that was in the town limits. It is on the Zernieke Family Barn, in Bonduel.|
|Ron, really liked this one. It was interesting that it is on the doors and between the two silos.|
|I was not able to find the name of this quilt block.|
|Even quilt shops have barn quilts on them.|
