Moving north, we stayed a night in Kewaunee. I always say every place needs a hook and Kewaunee County’s is a driving tour of barn quilts. Volunteers painted quilt patterns on boards then attached them to interesting barns in the area. We saw just a few.
Quilt pattern: Tangled Star
Barn type: Bohemian, 1882
Quilt pattern: Double Nine Patch
Barn type: Norwegian, Octagon
At the next stop, in addition to the barn quilt . . .
Quilt pattern: Skyscrapers
Barn type: Czech
We were just in time for
What are kolaches, you ask? (As did I) I would describe them as danishes with a more dense type of dough.
After our tasty snack, we continued with our barn quilts.
Quilt pattern: Flock
Barn type: Wood Peg, 1800’s
Quilt pattern: Blazing Star
Barn type: German
This barn wasn't part of the tour, but I just liked the patriotic touch and the unusual colors.
But my favorite has to be this barn we spotted in southern Wisconsin. It’s not often you see such a happy barn.
