Earlier this month, April, northwest Alabama joined the Barn Quilt Trail. This journey was begun back in 2001 by Donna Sue Groves of Adams County, Ohio. I was aware of this program, and so overjoyed that northwest Alabama has joined in. To date, there are 3 participating barns in the area. They are located in the towns of Killen and Lexington, Alabama. You can read all about them on Facebook: Alabama Barn Quilts. Also check out the Florence Times Daily here: Lauderdale County Barn Quilt Tour. The barn pictured above belongs to M/M Dallas Balch of Killen, Alabama. The photo is used with permission of the photographer, Regina Painter, of Alabama Barn Quilts. What a great way to display history and culture, and nod back to the age-old art of quilting!
