The Adventure Begins!

Those of you who have followed this blog for a while may know that I was a high school teacher. Well--no more!  I began to get a lot of requests to speak to quilters and other groups, so we decided to take my show on the road!  Here is our new home--we named her Ruby.

At the same time, I have been asked to write another book, tentatively titled "Farther Along the Quilt Trail."  So I am embarking on an incredible journey--both to speak about barn quilts and Donna Sue Groves' legacy and to document a bunch of new trails.

We spent the last couple of days in Kentucky, where I toured the Estill County trail.  A couple of highlights--isn't this beautiful countryside?

 Loads of wildflowers, butterflies, and hummingbirds!

 The view from our friend Sherba's back porch, where we are breakfast Saturday morning--we love it here!

We are off to Indiana, where I will give a talk this evening.  Hope to go to the state fair tomorrow--then off to Michigan and more barn quilts!


  1. How lucky you are. Congratulations on your new undertaking. Are you planning a trip to Europe? I would love to see some quilts on Dutch barns!

  2. What an exciting new adventure you are on! I recently saw my first Barn Quilt! And hope to see many many more in the future.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Manny & I were SO excited to see the picture of your new home (on wheels) and we LOVE her name!!! Please post more pics!!! YAY...now we can't wait to meet up with you! Happy Travels and God Bless!!!
