Barn Charm - Red, White & Blue


A bit of red, white, and blue Americana for the Election Day edition of Barn Charm.  This one on U.S. 60 E just outside Louisville.

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 .

I love seeing Barn Charm photos, not something we have here in Oz, well not nice looking barns anyway, but I have a question, I have seen this on many blogs, but never asked, Why do some barns have a quilt block on them?? I am so curious now.
