Wilkes Quilt Barn
Another part of our Sunday adventure was a sighting of this Quilt Barn along Longbottom road. I think Wilkes county has nine barns so far in their trail. I successfully scaled a hill (avoiding the electric fence) to snap this picture...and left Go Postal in the car explaining to the Pastor why I was so excited to see my first NC Quilt Barn! I wondered why these folks picked the Drunkard's Path as their motif...but maybe I don't want to know. Obviously Go Postal needs a Log Cabin block somewhere on his new barn....I will be planting that seed for sure. This tradition started in the MidWest but I think it is quickly spreading to other areas of the country where quilting heritage is still valued.
