I promised a picture, and here's the barn quilt installed on the garden shed with hostas, cone flowers, azaleas, and a butterfly bush planted around it:I absolutely love looking out my bedroom window at this quilt each morning when I awaken. The pattern is Summer Star Flower.
If you'd like to read about the history behind barn quilts, check out Barn Quilt Info (Edited to update with a correct link).
Also Suzi Parron's blog Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail is very interesting. She travels around the country photographing barn quilts wherever she spots them.
Linking to Bloomin' Tuesday.
