Bright light greets the side of the large red barn and filters through the nearly leafless autumn colored trees in the foreground. On the side of the barn most facing the viewer, a bold star patterned quilt is displayed for all to see. Quilt imagery on barns has been prevalent for hundreds of years, thought to have originated in Pennsylvania. Various quilt patterns may have even been used to distinguish the family residing in the home. The barn appears to be in fine shape, and the open mail box indicates that perhaps the owners have just retrieved the day’s mail.
