Driving the backroads they can be spotted if you have a keen eye.
As a quilter this was very cool.
Actually, it made me want to buy property again just so I could have an old barn to hang a quilt block from.
One evening on our trip, all 6 of us piled in the rented van and took off searching for these beautiful barns.
We saw more than I got photos of which just means I need to go back. Oh, and I will.
The leaves were just beginning to change and I can only image how stunning the landscape will be in just a few short weeks.
We spotted this barn in a rain shower so it is not a clear picture of this Sunbonnet Sue block, but the raindrops give it an interesting texture. How perfect too to have a field of drying corn in the background.
Unfortunately, every shot I took didn't turn out the way I would have liked. Sometimes it's difficult to get good focus while standing on the side of a curvy two lane country road with cars whizzing by and dogs barking at you.
Case in point. This picture pains me a little. I would love to have a chance to shoot this again. It was a great block, but it also had tobacco hanging to dry inside. Beautiful.
Kentucky. So worth the 15 hour drive. And the 15 hours back home.
