Quilt Block: ‘Rolling Star’ (best viewed from Prater Rd., barn quilt is on the hill above)
The straw bale barn was built in 2007, by an army of volunteers. 3 stringed straw bales are stacked and stuccoed to protect them from moisture. The barn is extremely solid and protects the old family horse, ‘Sunny’, from the winter winds.
The quilt block, Rolling Star’ was chosen by Julie and her sister-n-law, an avid quilter. Julie is a landscape designer, Sagebrush Country Gardens, and hopes to start a nursery on the property of drought tolerant and native plants one day.
