An exciting adventure looking at the land and the people around me.

It is hard to pick out a favorite, sometimes I like the barn as much as the quilt placed on it. These prairie palaces have seen many generations and have a charm to me. This is just a few of many I have shot this last month. Many have been started by a 4-H group trying to get many of these designs around their counties as part of a specific project. Something always new out on the prairie.
This design has been used by families with members serving in the military. One I passed had the star omitted and their sons name and date of his passing. I have been impressed with the names of the patterns, some passed down through the generations.My grandmother enjoyed quilting and used old army blankets in the middle of many while she worked at Fort Leavenworth.
I often wonder what people think when I am shooting these."Look honey, a guy with a tiny dog are in our drive shooting your quilt."
