IC701- Angie gave us a challenge this week with so many wonderful things to inspire: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/f...s-t629087.html I had just received my quilt barn stamp in the mail when she posted the challenge. I did a search for quilt barns and sure enough, there were some. Yay! I love to look over and see a quilt barn in my travels.

Love this image and how you colored it up, Brenda. Super pretty and comforting too. All your cards are so comforting. If you are having the weather we are today (189 miles away), a quilt would come in handy! I really didn't know quilt barns were a thing, but I looked at all the pictures and they are wonderful. Lovely card. Hugz

Brenda, this is quite simply- amazing! I love this image that you have colored to the 9's my friend. Many people in Iowa and SE Minnesota have painted quilts on the sides of their barns and they are true works of art. This is the first time I have seen a stamped image like this and I was just thrilled to see it on your card. This is so beautifully done Brenda and such a feast for the eyes too. ~Karen.

love this Brenda, I have a small collection of quilts and I would someday love to see quilted barns!!! I live in Mennonite country so lots of barns but they wouldn't think of embellishing them like that.

Both your inspiration and the pretty scene on your card take me back to my visit in Nebraska last summer. My sister and I traveled to a nearby very small country town where about 80% of the homes had "barn quilts" on them - We saw about 800 in all and no two alike.
