As I was filling around the barn of "All Around the Town," I finally decided on some of the quilting to fill IN the barn. It seems like every time I go into a barn, I walk through a spider web, so that was a MUST.
The "ROCK CITY" on the side of the barn only makes sense if you are from the southeastern USA, or if you were really observant when you were visiting that area. There are these attractions (rock formations and an underground waterfall in a cave) to visit where the states of Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee intersect near Lookout Mountain. They are called "Rock City" and "Ruby Falls."
When I was growing up in the south some 40 years ago, advertising for these places consisted of paying farmers to paint a billboard-type sign on the tin roof or wooden side of barns located along prominent 2- and 4-lane highways. Not only could you see the "See Rock City" or "Visit Ruby Falls" signs from a car, you could spot them from airplanes! I get very nostalgic every time I see a faded sign on a barn that is still standing when I go home for a visit. Now there are ugly billboards everywhere.
I've been filling toward the corners...actually made it to one!
I quilted along imaginary bad mortar joints on this brick house. It's fun to let the fabric dictate the quilting design.
More trees to fill with hearts...
