Kentucky Barn Quilts

Throughout our ride in Kentucky we came across a barn every now and then with a large colorful painting on the front. I had no idea what they were at first, and wish I had started taking pictures of them earlier. Matt guessed they were quilt patterns, and that they were. These pieces of art comprise what is called the Kentucky Quilt Line Trail. Finding barn quilts was definitely one of the highlights of riding through the farmland of Kentucky.
