3 barn quilt blocks all in one location.

 The idea behind the barn quilt blocks began in Iowa. When a daughter wanted to pay a tribute to her mother who was an avid quilter. She painted one barn quilt block and mounted it on an old barn The idea has caught on and now they even have "Barn Quilt Tours". This is a 4X4 Tumble weed pattern mounted at the end of our Bed and Breakfast.
 This is a 4X4 Star pattern mounted on our Pole barn.

This 8X8 large barn quilt block is mounted to the East on our bank barn. The pattern is the Bear Paw design. As you drive west on Northport road you can see it right above the corn field. Maybe I will have 2 more next year that you will only be able to view by staying at Mirror Lake B&B. You'll have to find them. All 3 barn quilt blocks were painted by me Kathy Fought.

Jed and I were both 10 year 4-her's and so were all three of the kids. Our favorites were showing sheep and contest horses we went to MANY show. I also enjoy riding horses we are lucky to have many trails through the woods or work in an arena. We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
