We know a number of friends who quilt. But we'd never heard of or seen a barn quilt. Rose McCauley of Kentucky sent us these photos of her own barn quilt for our Country Life Captions feature. . . .
Note from Rose:
"I live on a cattle farm in KY which isn't very far west, but I still thought you might enjoy this pic of our barn quilt. They’re becoming quite popular around here."
"This barn quilt was given to us by our three children and their spouses for Christmas, 2008. They chose a red, white and blue pattern because their dad is a veteran. I always plant red, white and blue flowers in front of our house in the summer and fly an American flag."
She features a book contest each month on her blog.
A Bit More About Rose:
Rose received her first fiction contract last September at the 9th annual American Christian Fiction Writers Conference in a surprise announcement by Becky Germany of Barbour Publishing.
Her novella is entitled Nick's Christmas Carol and will be in the anthology Christmas Belles of Georgia that will release in September 2011.
