Barn Quilts #5 and #6

These pictures show the lowest and highest painted quilts in Morgan County. The first is only inches from the ground.
It's in front of a hair salon.

This next one is at the TOP of the elevator in town. I wish I'd taken pictures of the tallest structure in the downtown area, but it didn't occur to me to do so. For big city people: an elevator is where farmers take their grain after harvest for storage. It can be corn, wheat, sunflowers, or other grains.
This particular elevator has recently gotten into the sunflower business. Don't you agree that it has the perfect flower for its block?!
There are others in town that I will be sharing soon because I took pictures after church on Sunday. Before I start start driving around to find the REAL BARN QUILTS I'll need to get a good map!

My "quilt" block will have to go on the garage door when I decide what I'll work on. I think it will have to have something to do with flowers, too. Until school is out for the summer I won't be wasting any energy on planning, though. ♥♪

Enjoyed seeing these painted quilts and look forward to seeing more. Glad you have shared this.

Good to hear from you. So sorry about the broken bones. That had to be challenging. Sometimes so much comes before our deep cleaning and it's with good cause.

Hope you are all better and healed a o k.

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks for visiting!
I am in zone 7 - 8. If the winter daphne will work for you its a nice med evergreen shrub that blooms for me in February (we often have snow in Feb) the blooms last about a month, and smell crazy good!
Speaking of crazy good...I love all those bird houses. That is so fun..just imagine the birds trying to chose a favorite:-)
Have a Great Weekend, Bella
