Geocache Description:


The Green County Barn Quilts project started in 2008, and by the end of 2010 the 100th barn quilt was installed. Barn quilts are painted wooden squares (designed like one block of a real quilt pattern), generally 8 x 8 feet in size. Some are located on "working" barns, and others are displayed on "retired" barns. It's not as challenging as geocaching, but hunting for the barn quilt locations is a true adventure in experiencing the roads less traveled of the Green County countryside.

The property was purchased in 1958 by John's grandparents, Arthur & Vera. They know that the house is over 100 years old, they guess the barn would be too. Barn is now used for storage & cattle. Vera Drake never left the country block her entire life. She was born on the northside of the block, the family later moved to the eastside. When she married Arthur they moved to the southside in 1926, then when they retired they moved to the westside. No name could be found for the thumbnail picture that was given to Kris Winkler to recreate. The Bartlett's daughter said that her favorite day is Sunday in the summertime, hence the name. This Barn Quilt is called Summer Sunday.
