Warm Quilts in the Cold Snow
Here I am all snug and warm on a dreary New Year's Eve, working away at my final chapters. I am also looking forward to serving dinner for a few friends.
A couple of folks mentioned that they would like to see some photos of barn quilts in the snow. Not too many people venture out into the cold to photograph barns, so the few snow photos that I have are already earmarked for the book!
But a quick email to Clayton and Carolyn Pratt of Kankakee, Illinois, and a beautiful winter snow barn photo landed in my inbox! I visited Kankakee in October; a great tour and a barn quilt potluck--it doesn't get any better than that!
Yes, that really is a barn--George Bingley's barn, with the Flower Basket quilt; the photo was taken by Mr. Bingley. For more info on the barn and this trail, go to
You will also see links to the YouTube videos about their project--check them out!
I have some more winter photos coming--stay tuned. And please do drop a note to let me know that you stopped by.
