Another of the barns I've been featuring this week that make up a Quilt Barn Trail in West Virginia. A wooden quilt square is attached to the barn making it 'a quilt barn.'
Have a great weekend

It looks even better with the blue sky behind.
My Sky Watch post are: Views and Rainbows
Terrific shot! Perfect against the sky and love the green grass! Happy SSS!
The barn is so balanced with the blue sky backdrop and the wonderful green forground.
This tour has been fun, Carletta! Keep the barns coming. ;-)
What a wonderful shot. Love the red barn.
Love the red barn :)
Nice pictures. I like your Apple Blossoms and turkey shots-
What a lovely shot! Since you now have 2 skywatch posts with barns with quilt patterns near the roofline, I wonder if that is/was a common custom?
I am a former quilter, and find myself missing it more and more lately.
A wonderful star, to be sure!
Nice shot...I love these quilt barns, and your red one really stands out in that field...we have these in Ohio also...
Nice contrast in this picture!!
Have a great SWF
Greetings from NL
Wow! That is fantastic. You have given me an idea for a photo of a barn near where we take our summer family vacation.
Why are so many American barns red? Always such a striking colour on the landscape makes me wonder why ours here are so drab.
f/u on babooshka's question about the barn color, i have only seen red so far. is there a reason for that?

Ha! lovely title and so serene looking out there. Lovely sky too.
That is not a picture. It is a great painting.
My thoughts were along the lines of Luis...it really is a fabulous shot. I sure love it.
I really like the clear lines and colours of this photo.
Love those puffy clouds. I wonder too, why all barns I saw are painted red. I got one barn photo that is red, too.
Wonderful photo and the Quilt Barn Trail sounds like something I would love to see.
I love the colors... wonderful photos of the barn and the sky... Really like your blog layout also, I tried to change mine today ....Lovely Sky Watch.... have a great weekend.... cheers
Great Photo... worth framing!
*A wonderful weekend to you* Maria
What a great perspective. It's a perfect skywatch photo.
This is really nice, and enticed me to peruse your older posts. You do brilliant work, woman. I aspire to such competence on my own blog, but alas, I'm winging it (learning issues, you know) and have a ways to go.
this photo makes me wonder what is right over the hill?
Carletta: What a neat shot of the quilt barn, I just learned about this the last few weeks from Mary from Indiana.
A really wonderful perspective, Carletta!
Gorgeous quilt !!
I love this shot, so simple but what a wonderful composition !!
Well done :-)
this is kewl!
Thank you for your lovely comment re Xavier... he is loving it :-)
another fantastic quilt barn.
have a pleasant day, carletta
All of these barn quilts are lovely. Is there a story behind why the Barn Quilt Trail was made? Did you tell it and I somehow missed it?
I'm loving these quilt barns - a tiny piece of whimsy in a very utilitarian and work-oriented structure.
Summer Stock Sunday is up and running - come join the fun!
Excellent!!! Fab shot here Carletta!
Wonderful sky perspective on this nifty red barn in the grassy field. Love the fluffy white clouds on the beautiful blue ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
Carletta, I love your quilt decorated barn pictures! Makes
one want to run right over and see.
Thanks for your visit, yes this will be grandchild number five or so for us.
But it will be Karen's first. Karen is our little baby girl. :-)
Happy Sky Watching. I just posted my roast for my Midwestern Friends!

Beautiful and perfect.
This is the ultimate in Americana, and a beautiful photograph. I like the contrasts of tones, and the peaceful mood.
That is spectacular. I love barn shots and I wish I had taken that one!
What a wonderfully unique composition. I feel as if it's peeking above the hilltop, inviting us to climb just a bit more to see the rest.
Brilliantly composed, and so evocative as a result.
I just found a comment you left about my quilt barn photos and finally found my way here! Wonderful! I hope to go out looking for some more this summer. They are such fun to look for and photograph. I've been collecting information on them for some time. We have almost none in Indiana for some reason, but Ohio and Kentucky, Iowa and Tennessee have lots.
