I found more barn blocks
We went to "Quilting in the Country" in Bozeman Montanaa. There is a darling cabin as you come up the drive and this quilt block was on it. Too cute.
This block is on an angle on another cabin close by.
The flowers and landscaping around the cute little store are wonderful. The peonies were in bloom in this bed with an actual sewing machine on a stand in the middle. The ropes are to keep people away because it was their Shop Hop and so many were expected.

We later went to the Historical society where they had quilts on display. The cheddar 9-patch is on an old fire engine.
The local quilt group combined their talents and made this historical quilt in the 70's. It has cabins, buffalo/bison, covered wagons, fishing, tee pees, local birds & flowers, and geysers as Bozeman is only about 45 miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
This quilt is kind of a mystery to me. I think it is made out of tobacco wrappers. But I've just seen the satin ones and this is all flannel.
