Quilts on Barns - #84 Grandpa's Delight

This block I had to twist Jen's arm to get her to stop so I could snap a picture.  She was bound and determined that we get to a quilt shop in another town before 4pm and it was already about 3:35.  The Grandpa's Delight block is located at W4876 County C in Monticello, WI.  This block has a little history behind it:

The barn quilt design is fashioned after a picture made from wooden pieces by Lawrence H. Karlen. Lawrence (1927-2009) was an avid woodworker and enjoyed sharing his various wooden creations with family and friends. The barn quilt is a memorial to him, thus the name Grandpa’s Delight.

With about 10 minutes to spare we walked into Patches & Petals.  It was a pretty cute shop.  I'd go again!

This marks the end of the first half of the Green County Quilts on Barns.  There's still another 30+ to discover in Green County.  We just need to be able to find a good chunk of time to go searching for them!

Looks like a really cute quilt shop. Love the hardwood floors and the quilts hanging off the balconies.

So Did you pick up any goodies at the shop? Or just more inspiration?
