There is a sneak peek (PDF) of the new book Every Barn Tells a Story, available on-line at: Ann Zemke of Blaine, and Diane Entrikin of Corcoran, Mn., look to have put together a beautiful book of Barn Quilts, with stories about the owners and sewing patterns as well. I have not yet seen the publication (available March 30), but would love to get a review posted here.
