  1. We have a friend who has a project making these barn decorations and selling them to benefit the local library. She has done over a hundred of them. She has asked me to come out and photograph them and I'm just starting.

  2. Barn quilts are new to me, but they look great. That last one done in B&W would make for a great focus tuning target for a long lens!
     
  3. After all the work that goes into one of those quilts I can't believe they hang them on their barn. Strange.
     
  4. Gordon, they are not quilts in the usual sense. They are painted on metal plates so they're very durable.
     
  5. I see said the blind man as he stumbled into the ditch at the side of the road.
     
  6. Thanks for wading into that one--- I thought they were fabric too . . . .:oops:
     
  7. My father always said "I see, said the blind man to his deaf daughter".

  13. The barn quilts are nice...I thought they are fabric also. But it is the beautiful scenery and wonderful barns that I am enjoying.

    These are great, Jim. They have these in some places along Maryland's eastern shore and in the southern Maryland farms. Remarkable.
