Barn Quilts

My in-laws live in a small northern Ontario town. On our way up from southern Ontario we pass many farms. As a quilter I have noticed many barns that have "barn quilts" on them and have
always wondered about the significance and admired the beauty and uniqueness of each block.

I have wondered if they were wood or fabric pieces too. Perhaps there were a few of each as we zipped by.

Sewing with Nancy recently posted about barn quilts and it intrigued me to do some searching. Interestingly enough, there are  actual Ontario Barn Quilt Trails.

Have you noticed barn quilts before? What is your reaction to them?
