Around here it’s all about history- preserving it in many forms through fabric and thread. Recently, I shared here about another way we are preserving our heritage with barn wood and we were inspired to work those two together so….We are excited to introduce a collaboration of our two loves, Quilts and Barn wood…Our Barn Quilts!
This little labor of love combines the best of both worlds- history of barn wood we actually salvaged ourselves from old barns right here in East Tennessee- with classic country quilt blocks complete with a monogram, of course! You know us Southern gals- monogram it all!
Creating this unique piece was a process for me. It’s complete different than anything we have ever made but it fits in with our style so perfectly! They embody exactly what we long to create through all our products- history, memories, keepsakes.
I’m in this place where I want to fill my home with meaningful pieces, but I just don’t want anything or all those “repo” antique pieces that everyone has on Insta right now…you know what I mean? I wanted something different, but something on trend. Something with history but something that could represent our family right now.
I think we have achieved it! A heirloom piece that holds real history and heritage, literally ingrained in the wood- with a little personalization too.
Our Barn Quilts now become a piece of your history as it graces the walls of your home. The combination of the old barn wood, the rich history of weathered time and work- with the classic quilt block and family initial…it’s that perfect melding of old and new. It’s got that “thing” that makes antiques yours and at home in your modern home.
The barn wood we actually salvaged and torn apart ourselves and then used it to create something new and beautiful for our home and our family.
That’s the history. That’s the story.
Those are the pieces I want in my home and I am thilled to share them with you! Available now in the shop in five different colors of tan, chambray, navy, burgundy and sage, all it needs is your family initial. Shop now!
