Lewis and Clark Barn Quilt


A brightly colored "Lewis And Clark" quilt block hangs
on a wonderful 90 year old barn.


Doesn't this barn look amazing against our blue, Kansas skies?



The current owners of this property 
raise cattle (beef)  and grow corn, soybeans and wheat.

I am enjoying this opportunity to connect with the land around me.

  2. I've only ever seen these barn quilts in photos, but I'd love to see one like this, under that bright blue sky.

    1. I saw pictures of these barns in other states for a few years before I saw any of them in person. So glad I made the effort to go find them. I don't know if BC has any of these or not. Ontario does.

    1. At this time it looks like there may be some, but they are not organized and there is no map to show where they are.
