ANOTHER QUILT BARN - THIS ONE IS NEAR ATHENS, OHIO. AROUND THE TURN OF THE 20TH CENTURY, THE PRODUCTION OF CLAY BRICKS BOOMED IN THIS REGION OF SOUTHEAST OHIO. THE BRICKWORK BLOCK IS A TRADITIONAL QUILT PATTERN THAT HONORS THE OLD MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY.
I love these posts about the barns and quilt blocks. I'd love to see one in person.
This is reallty neat! I love the big quilt block (no surprsing with my nick name, right?) My Ruby Tuesday also features a red barn, come and visit :-)
This is fantastic. I love the design on this one. The colors of the trees and that seem to highlight the barn. Wonderful my friend :)
I'm so glad I asked you about these last week (or the week before, I can't remember, now). They're so pretty especially this one w/ the turning leaves in the background & against the barn is really nice - It matches!
What a gorgeous barn. Not big, but covered in a fine barn red and nicely nestled by the hill. A lovely quilt, a fantastic take (whether in W.Va or Ohio)
I really like this picture of the quilt barn. The information about the clay blocks is interesting. This was new to me.
Great quilt pattern on a lovely RED barn, Carletta! Thanks for the info about the quilt square design! Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)
Interesting info about the quilt barns, and this design in particular.
The background foliage is so pretty. I'm sad most of the leaves are now on the ground.
Happy Ruby Tuesday, Carletta!
I really like these quilt blocks on barns. A couple of weeks ago, my hubster and I were in Upstate New York where quite a few barns had similar squares. But the hubster was in a hurry so we did NOT stop for photos. Maybe on our next trip. LOL
I like these photos...they leave me wanting to see more of the surrounding area.
i never tire of seeing your barn photos..and look at that stunning quilt block..simply GORGEOUS!!
oh I will have to go back and look at the others these are so interesting
What a lovely barn, I love the brickwork block. You found a lot of red for Ruby Tuesday!
Excellent captures. Have a great Ruby Tuesday.
Carletta, this is lovely, and you've given us the lovely story that goes with it, thanks for sharing it.
a beautiful quilt barn. nice entry for RT
35 years ago I owned a large barn and it was full of hay. That one fall I would just lay in the hay loft and dream. I just love barns. Thank you so much
Nice ruby find...Love the quilting blocks. perfect for this Ruby day.
Very pretty. I like barns, in almost any shape. This one is beautiful with its decorated door.
I love the way you've captured and shared this wonderful old quilt barn from different perspectives.
Hugs and blessings,
My Ruby Tuesday
Hi Carletta, A beautiful quilt barn and two very beautiful images. I haven't come across a quilt barn yet, a pleasure I look forward to. Thanks for stopping by.
Beautiful abstract geometry in a lovely natural setting. The trees in the bottom photo look like colored feathers.
this looks really nice and eye-catching! Thank you, Carletta for the info about it too:)
I thought it was wooden, didn't know it was called a BRICKWORK BLOCK. Thanks for sharing a little history there. The shots are very interesting!
My RT entry is here. Happy RT! :)
interesting...lovely pictures :)
my post is up....HERE
nice red barn,so perfect for the meme!
How cool is that! A patchwork pattern made to honor brick industry and later painted on this beautiful barn. America sure is the country for enthusiasts of all kinds.
One's gotta love them.
How absolutely stunning! That gorgeous red mixed with the fall leaves! And the quilt blocks (is that what they are called?) on the barn are so picturesque! Beautiful shots!
Beautiful shots. I'm surrounded by that kind of thing and can't seem to capture it.
Great shot Carletta, I really like the asymmetric composition and the warm red of the barn.
My best friend went to school in Athens, I haven't thought about that place in years.
Very pretty...I always LOVE seeing these when I am traveling.
First "quilt-barn" I 've seen.
What lovely red colour! Does the barn look a little slanted?
I really love old barns, and am always on the look-out for them especially the quilt ones which I've never seen.. This is a real cutie, and perfect for RT.
About my header, I like to change it often. Just personal preferance I guess. The beach glass is some I've found in the past month on Lake Erie.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
Beautiful photo in a delightful part of the country. Barns for me always typify the regional culture and now that I'm used to the look of Midwest barns, it was nice to be reminded of those farther east.
love that barn! so beautiful :)
u may view mine if u have time
I love these barns!!
I don't think I'll have a RT post this time!
I'm in love! Just gorgeous. One of the things I miss from up North. B : )
the composition of the top shot is flawless
I agree, great photograph!
The first shot is fantastic, as always!
ruby red street decorations
Great shots! Wonderful colours.
I love the warm colours!
What an interesting barn. And a cute quilt pattern!

Yay! More barn quilts. I LOVE barn quilts.
I too love these quilt barns - beautiful!
Great shots! I love photographing old barns. They have such character. :)
Hello Carletta! Love this red barn surrounded with fall colors! Fabulous...
Happy Ruby to you...
Great photo. You have an interesting barn. thanks for sharing.
I love the contrast between the barn and the colourful leaves!!!
fascinatingly beautiful ! sandy
Oh this is such a wonderful picture. It has so much personality! I love the color of the barn. It is one of my favorites that I have tried to duplicate around my house. But nothing compares to real weathered barn wood.
Oh and I love the pictures of the fawn and the petunia. You are a fantastic photographer!
Thanks for stopping by my RT yesterday. And yes it was a frozen pizza. It was completely covered in freezer burn. Yum, huh?!
That is cool. I love the quilt barn!
Beautiful shot! I really love the angle of the close-up. The colors are so wonderful. Love the petunia too!
So interesting and beautiful images, Carletta!
I love these barns with the quilt blocks on them.
Gill in Canada
simply beautifully captured shots...lovely!
Wonderful photos, Carletta! I see your trees look like ours - mostly bald.
I like the total picture, but the first one is especially pretty with the light just right.
Fantastic shot !! Beautiful !!Unseen Rajasthan
Carletta: What a cool barn, Mary had asked me if we have quilt barns here and I never see them.
I love these beautiful quilt barns, they are so colorful. I don't see them here in SE WA. I really like the perspective in the first shot.
So lovely Carletta, some day I would love to come explore your part of the world your photos intrigue me.
Aaaah yes, another beautiful barn. I could have spent three weeks photographing just barns, that's how much I love them! This one is particulary nice with all the Fall colors as a background!
