Double Wedding Ring Barn Quilt, East Bend, North Carolina

One of my favorite things to do in the Miata is to go look for barn quilts on the weekend. What started as a way for Donna Sue Groves to honor her mother on her barn in Adams County, Ohio, has spread throughout the United States and Canada as a way for counties to bring in tourism dollars. Here in North Carolina, the idea started up in the mountains north of Asheville as way to draw tourists off the Blue Ridge Parkway and has since moved east into Piedmont NC.

Yadkin County, 50 miles west of me, started a quilt trail about two years ago which now encompasses more than 20 barn quilts. This particular barn quilt is called Double Wedding Ring and can be found at Aquilla Creek Cottage outside of East Bend, NC.
