Barn Quilts

When taking various routes from Point A to Point B I'm sometimes lucky enough to find a new Barn Quilt.
This one uses the company's colors to create the pattern.
Last Sunday while showing off some of the BQ's in Fort Morgan, we saw this one across from the corner where we were ready to turn. Too many shadows for a great picture this morning, but I take them when I go to town, not planning very well for perfect light.

We spotted this one about a half mile off the road so I went to make sure it really was a BQ block. Couldn't get a clear picture--maybe an eighth of a mile away--so the zoom did its best. I'm not tramping through the fields to get closer!
I know where a few more are that I haven't taken yet, but would like to call and get permission to go in the yard as it is up a long lane. It is a thrifty pastime as all I do is take a detour or two on my way there and back home.
