Quilts on Barns - #1 Log Cabin

The first barn we went to was at 2826 Maple Road in Burlington, WI.

I had plugged all of the addresses into our GPS in the morning. We've never used it in the country before so were a bit shocked when we didn't find our first barn. I'm guessing that the addresses aren't based on where the home and barn reside, but a general address for the property. So the first one we were already past when the GPS told us we were there. No fear though, Mike was really good at spotting the blocks...much better at it than I am!

I thought the sky was perfect for photography. When we started in the morning it was very overcast and that meant some wonderfully brilliant colored shots.

Wow, I had no idea there were barns with quilt blocks on them...right here in my own back yard! Thanks for the pix.

I love barns (we live in a farming area) and the log cabin pattern. Are you going to see more? What a fun trip.
