I have a moment to sit and check my mail, and to see what has happened in the world of Barn Quilts over the past 10 days. I am alone for an hour, but will be on the road tomorrow, for a weekend with the Scottish Clans on Grandfather Mountain.

I did notice a wonderful story in the Le Mars Daily Sentinel, about the Ahlers family of Le Mars, Iowa. They are living on the family farm that turns 100 years old this year. In honor of reaching this century mark, the Ahlers family (with four childern 12 - 16), have made an artistic (Barn Quilt), depiction of their windmill that still hangs in the Iowa sky. With symbolic colors, and lots of love, this is the type of Barn Quilt that beams pride, and inspires others.
