Corn Barn Quilt

This is a 8 x 8 barn quilt made in four 4 x 4 sections.  This will be on display at a corn maze north of Madison, WI.  If you live too far away to pick up an 8 x 8 size, this is a good way to transport a barn quilt of this size.  The 4 x 4 fits into a mini-van or a pickup truck bed.
