I grew up in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Of course there is the city of Reading in that county and several other cities like Kutztown, but most of Berks and it's sister county, Lancaster County, is made of beautiful green farm land.
Barn Quilt Along, I thought about the beautiful barns in Pennsylvania and the hex signs that hang on many of them. That was my inspiration for my barn quilt.
I did decide on this green, gray, white and red border fabric that I've been hoarding forever. The fabric seems perfect with little hex signs and a folk/Amish couple.
I wanted a heading naming the quilt at the top and I searched and searched for letters that I thought would work well with the barns. I used this Anna Griffin Tilly Alphabet fabric to spell out Barns of Berks County.Lori. It was such a delightful project to make. The next time you see this it will be quilted and have red binding. I can't wait.
