Stride Away - Dotted throughout the country side in the Midwest are barns donning beautiful hand painted barn quilts. What is a barn quilt? Well, it isn't a full size quilt. It is generally a single quilt block pattern painted onto a piece of wood that measures 8 feet. After they are painted they are hung on exteriors of barns and outside structures. Barn quilt patterns vary. The majority are comprised of simple geometric shapes, like squares, rectangles and triangles. Some are creative. Telling a story. They honor your heritage.
Breezy Meadows - Every farmer designs a barn for himself. They're distinctive. Every barn is unique and built to fit a certain needs. In the midwest, we see plenty of all stone or bottom stone barns. The stone was an easy choice for building material for our ancestors. As our families cleared and worked the land, they created stone piles. The stone piles became an instant, free, source for building materials. They found that most stones from the area were flat on one side. The stone was used to build silos holding the farmers grains and in some cases an entire barn was built from stone.
