Barn Charm - More Barn Quilts

 

Here's one last barn quilt to close out June and my look at some of eastern Kentucky's colorful quilt decorated barns. This photo was taken from the highway through bare trees and bushes. I pulled off the road after catching the flash of color from a distance. Not sure, but I think the quilt design is called Turkey's Foot. Anyone know for sure?

Now if you'd like to participate in the Barn Charm meme, or just see some interesting "barnery" from many different places, just go to Bluff Area Daily .

Wonderful! I like the view through all the branches, and of course a quilt square always makes a barn beautiful.

I had nerve heard of these or seen one until I read about them on this meme. I started paying more attention to the old barns and it took me a while but I finally found a new tin barn with two painted on the front. Only ones I've been able to find.

Thanks for sharing yours.

I love your perspective on this shot Faye...my kind of picture!
Good luck with getting off the "Green Square" you will be surprised at what your camera can do!!! I think you should be able to get some of those night shots n close up "Bokeh" once you learn some of the settings!!

I like the view through the trees Faye!
The pattern isn't the typical Turkey Foot pattern I know but if Rose comes by she'll probably know for sure if it's a variation.

I like all the vines and branches up close--makes the photo look more rustic. And, I always love barn quilts. I've done a couple of posts on my blog. They're always fun.

It looks like it is a handsome barn, too...of course a quilt square dresses up anything.
