Quilted Corners of Wyalusing PA

Talk about being lucky....I walked into the Wyalusing Chamber of Commerce and who did I meet but Peggy DeMartino.  She is the gal who started the Quilted Corners Project in Wyalusing PA.

The "Quilted Corners of Wyalusing" is a public art project bringing the spirit of the arts to our community and revealing community-wide expression of our farming and quilting heritage to those who tour our area, benefiting present and future generations.  (copied from the Chamber of Commerce Website...click for the link)



I was able to tour the current show, "The Antique Quilt Collection of Patti Shores" in Blue Heron Gallery and see where the quilt blocks are made for the barns.  More on that in the next post....I'm still doing laundry from our trip :)

First things first.....I promised to post photos of the quilt blocks on barns in Wyalusing....you'll be thrilled to see people don't just have them on barns :)  These are in no particular order....I just snapped as I drove around town.  Enjoy :)

  6. I wish I could convince the ranchers around here to put quilt designs up on their barns! Or at least on horse blankets or something!

  9. Wow! I love that the quilt blocks are showing up everywhere! My Mom wants one on her barn (but the barn needs a good painting and some upkeep). Maybe I will suggest she put one on the side of the house!

  11. Love it! I've been trying to get Gladys to do one on her barn in TN.

    Hope that laundry pile has gone away. I'm off to a quilt show after I ship out a package, and make a trip to Ikea.

  13. I love that! I wonder if the husband would let me paint a quilt block on the front our house? Maybe I'll just make a small one for next to the front door. I think they are beautiful.

  16. Hi Kelly. I say you like #4 or #9. Which is it? Guess which one is my favorite. That's right it is a great block with 2 boys, a man with his cap and cute d-o-g. That's MY fav.

    FYI - Scissor Fobs are on their way. New and exciting designs. Can't wait for you to show them!

    Keep up the great work.
