This unique quilt was designed by Lucy Maust. Lucy says, ” Each of these 21 covered bridges are located within a 100 mile radius of McHenry. I took the pictures and had them printed on fabric by a company in London, England. Information on each picture includes the name and location of the bridge, date of construction and renovations.”
If you enjoy local history and landmarks, covered bridges or beautiful quilts, this will make a lovely addition to your home!
For those who may want a smaller covered bridge piece, Lucy also pieced this wall hanging featuring the King’s Bridge in Rockwood, PA. (Wall hanging measures 29″x29″)
These beautiful wooded items were handcrafted by Lynn Atkins to be auctioned this Saturday at Country Fest. Lynn has been a big supporter of Country Fest. Throughout the year, he makes unique pieces out of wood to be sold at the auction. When the big day comes, you will often find him volunteering in the auction building “catching bids” with zeal . We appreciate the time and enthusiasm Lynn has given to Country Fest.
The story of this quilt’s origin began with Glen Maust’s interest in the many old barns he noticed on his frequent visits to Kentucky. He began stopping to take pictures of them and eventually he talked to his mother, Lucy Maust about designing a quilt featuring the barns. Lucy was up for the challenge, having designed and pieced many quilts in the past. She had the photos printed on fabric by a company in England and designed the borders and other blocks, keeping with the rustic theme of the barns. Kentucky Barns will be on display with other quilts in the forenoon and auctioned in the afternoon at Country Fest this year. If you stop by the quilt room, you may have the opportunity to meet Lucy and you will find Glen busy in the auction building.
