After meeting at the Almelund Threshing Show in August 2013, I began to work on the custom quilt for the Rhoads’ well maintained barn. I really enjoyed meeting Jerry and Deb, and getting to know them a little while their quilt was being prepared and installed. Their barn quilt is the largest I’ve ever made, measuring 8 ft. by 8 ft. Take a look at the pictures below, and also check out the related article from Denise Martin at the Chisago County Press newspaper.
Denise Martin (Chisago County Press) published an article in an October edition of the paper titled: Adorning barns with folk art; an old practice renewed. The article might be found at their website here, or we have a PDF in case that link ever breaks.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy of the Rhoads’ custom barn quilt.
