Barn Charm

I think this is a charming old red barn. Those of you who visit me often know I love these barns known as quilt barns for the painted wooden quilt blocks attached to the barn's siding. The name of the quilt pattern used here is Annie's Choice. It is one of several in a barn quilt trail in Roane County, West Virginia. The trail isn't far from my hometown of Spencer where I grew up.

Excellent choice. There a a couple 'quilt barns' out this way but I don't think it is a western idea. MB

I love the quilt block. My first thought when I saw it was "Pennsylvania Dutch". I'm not sure I have ever seen a quilt barn before. Maybe I just haven't been paying attention....I will be now :)
