Mystery Quilt Challenge

This is my version of the 2015 Mystery Quilt Challenge that our guild recently completed.  I used a bundle of coordinated black, gray and white fabrics plus a red for some contrast.  All of the three different black fabrics have a shiny silver finish that I really like.

Barn Quilts


I spent 2 weeks exploring Michigan this summer with my husband on our tandem, a bicycle built for two.  What a surprise to find a barn quilt trail on Old Mission Peninsula near Traverse City, Michigan.  Here are two of the barn quilts I saw while touring the peninsula.  He was nice enough to pull over every time I spotted one so I could take pictures. There were 450 other riders on the week long Shoreline West Bicycle Tour in August.  I'll share other barn quilts on a future post.
