Barn Quilts of Pender (Ne)

I recently drove over to Pender, Nebraska to look at their barn quilts.  It was amazing!  They have over 200 barn quilts with almost 150 within the town!
Pender has a population of around 1100, so that is a lot of barn quilts.  Most of the barn quilts were mounted on posts in people's front yards.  All of the barn quilts have a "quilts of Pender 125" mounted next to them as you can see in this picture.  This sign also has the name of the quilt block.  This one is called Thistle Bloom and is found in front of a florist shop.   All of these barn quilts were done in honor of Pender's 125th celebration this summer.  If you are looking for a fun Sunday afternoon drive, Pender is the place to go!

Barn Quilt Trio

These are three 2 x2 barn quilts that I completed this summer.  I love the variety that you can get with the designs and colors. Each barn quilt is unique and individual.

Barn Quilt in the Summer

This is my barn quilt with a flower bed full of black-eyed susans.  The gold of the flowers brings out the gold in the barn quilt.
