How About a Trip to Quilt National, Then a Drive Through Southern Ohio to See the Quilt Blocks on the Barns?

I recently wrote about quilt blocks painted on barns along the quilt trail in North Carolina, quilted gardens in Elkhart County, Indiana, and now I just learned that quilts painted on barns are also in southern Ohio. This is the site to check for Ohio’s: http://ourohio.org/index.php?page=a-patchwork-of-love-2
To learn more about Ohio’s barns and the tour, check out: http://ourohio.org/index.php?page=where-to-find-ohio-quilt-barns
The Monroe County tour is written up at: www.monroecountyohio.net Color brochures are available that outline the driving route and directions to each barn location. Contact the Monroe County Tourism office at 740-472-0169 to obtain a brochure. To learn about the Adams County quilt squares, visit www.adamscountytravel.org
Right now I am thinking about a trip to Athens to Quilt National, and then some time spent driving along the barn route in Athens County, at least. What fun!

Last weekend, a new little grand puppy arrived at my son’s home. Her name is Maude. She is an 8 week old bloodhound, who arrived at the airport from the breeder in Colorado.
Maude is so little! But soon enough all that will change. She is a little cutie! So gentle and laid back, quite the lover, too.
