More Barn Quilts of Shawao, Wisconsin

I could not find the name of this one, although another farm, has one that is similar.
Again, at first we did not know we were on a "trail".  We thought farms in the area had just put up barn quilts.

This one is "WELCOME HOME".  It was designed by a daughter of the Zenk family.  Her father was a veteran of the Vietnam War. 

"COLONIAL GARDEN" is on the barn of Knueppel & Sons, in Cecil, Wisconsin.

"COUNTY FAIR" is on one of the buildings at the Shawano County Fairgrounds in Shawano.
This is the 250th barn quilt.

Here is "AVIAN ABODE" on The South Forty store in Shawano.  One of the window displays was all bird houses.

Appropriately named!

This is "FLAMING STAR" on the Ainsworth family barn in Shawano.

Then sometimes we saw interesting barns.

This Wisconsin, area had so many barns. Some just seemed to collapse straight down. It was like someone just took the side walls out and the roof went straight down.

No name of this quilt.  Would love to know what it is.  As you can see, the blocks have added elements to them, as this guitar. In reading some of the information, common block was used, and something else representative of the family has been added.

Here is "BOER GOT PRIDE", on the Bohr Farm, in Navarino, Wisconsin.

"A DIAMOND FIELD" is on the Samz Family farm, in Shiocton, Wisconsin.
