The Barn Collective



I would have tried for a better photo of this barn but the owner didn't seem pleased that I was photographing it. I was at a crossroads right in front of the barn and she actually drove over to where I was and asked me why I was taking a picture. I told her I thought it a beautiful barn with the quilt square on it, and she was sort of surprised. In our area, the quilt barns are a tourist attraction and many people stop to take photos. Maybe I was the first to stop at hers. I don't know. But I didn't hang around. :)

  1. Great quilt barn! If I'm on a public road I take all the shots I want. Who cares what someone thinks. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  2. That's a bit unnerving for you but I'm guessing the owner was worried about why you were taking pictures. Everyone is so cautious today. It's a beautiful barn though with it's quilt. I'm glad you were able to snap a photo.

  5. I love barn quilts and when we built our barn that was the first thing I did was to paint one. I'm sure she was just a bit worried as to why you were taking a photo of her barn.

  6. Hi Pam, I was just a bit confused at her aggressiveness since they really are tourist attractions in our area. But I was happy to get the one photo. :)

  7. Hi Felicia, At a local tourist center there are maps for the quilt barns in our area. You can drive all through the mountains and foothills, discovering where they are. There are many of them. Each one I have stopped at to take a picture, the owners have been friendly, until this one.

  8. Hey Tanya, Yes, it was a tad disconcerting. She also had some gorgeous horses in the field. I only managed one photo of them and it didn't turn out well. :(

  9. Hi Judy, I have always wanted to paint one for our barn. I hopped over to your blog again and I left a comment on one of your posts. I think it might be your barn quilt, but I wasn't sure. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  10. It's sad, but with the way things are nowadays, people are suspicious of cameras pointed at their homes or property. This is a gorgeous barn..I love the quilt design.

  12. Love your barn photo and the gorgeous quilt. It is so sad, that today we live in a world where everyone has to be so careful and aware even when it's so innocent.
    You are very talented with your camera.
    Have a wonderful last few days of October.
    Hugs

  13. Hi Celestina Marie, It is sad. I know there are reasons to be cautious and I'm sure she didn't mean to come across as unfriendly. Thank you for your kind words!

  15. Nice find! Thanks for getting the shot for us! I don't like the residents seeing me take photos, but I need to get over that. I've never had anyone approach me though.
