Big and Beautiful Traverse City (Barn) Quilts!

I had the most glorious trip to Traverse City this past weekend with my Sweetie, Steve.

We went up for an extra special geocaching trip - grabbing several historic caches in Grand Traverse County.

We spent Saturday morning touring the Old Mission Penninsula where I got to combine both my passions - quilting and caching!

Welcome to the Old Mission Penninsula Barn Quilt tour!  In addition to a lovely wooden quilt squares displayed in the most idyllic settings, each barn had a corresponding geocache nearby.  The caches were large and inventive - just like the barn quilts!

  1. Oh how fun. We are beginning to see a few out here in the west, but they are still a rarity.


I'd love to hear from you!
