Back to Iowa

Today I am back in Iowa. Not physically, but I am going over that chapter and remembering my single longest--twelve day--barn quilting adventure in June of 2009.

I spent an entire day photographing barns quilts in Fayette County and had interviews set for the next day. Unfortunately, storms and hail came through and chased me east--right into Wisconsin! Fayette has some great barns and quilts, though.

The one at the above left caught my eye because of the silo; I couldn't figure out what the heck it was made of. That information would come later in the week. Above right, though it's a bit hard to make out, is a windmill square--an apt choice for this farm. The last one--I don't know--the little barn, the grass, the sky all seemed just "picture perfect' to me.


  1. I am THRILLED to see these barns from Fayette County Iowa. I drive past 2 of the 3 when head from our home in north central Iowa to visit my Mom in NE Iowa. I know that pink block is along Hwy.#3 and I think the barn with the windmill beside it is on a North-South county road that goes to West Union. If you want to see a few more barn photos I've shared on my blog, check out my post from Aug 26, 2009. Not all are from Fayette County, but several are.

  2. Such a pretty sight!~Thank you for your lovely blog!

  3. Please continue this great work and I look forward to more of your awesome blog posts. Info
