Another from Oakland...

This is some kind of business....it is 'in town'....I just thought and looked up the population.  According to what I found, one place says 881 in 2011 and another says 933.  The quilt block on the left is Corn & Beans I believe...not sure about the other.  If that center square was not set on the diagonal, it would be what I have heard called Fox & Geese or Duck & Ducklings.  Anyone else know a name for this, feel free to comment.  Because it probably does have another name...seems like a lot of quilt squares have different names according to the region you are from.

We stopped at this little bitty diner there in Oakland.  It was a place where everyone sat and talked to each other.  We paid $1 for fried zucchine...it was a plate piled high.  I forget what else we got to eat other than that, but the single plate was all we both wanted to eat.  We often talk about them...they were some of the best we had ever had.

A fine shot of these patterns that have meaning I wouldn't have understood. Very well done.

What an amazing price! This building is too little for such big quilt squares. BUT if it is a business, it is O.K. because they need to be very visible. But they have no sign! How would people ever find them?

I love it! I'm still not good about quilt block names, so I can't help you sorry!

I concur with your pattern names Rose.
I wonder if it has to do with quilting or maybe they actually make the barn quilts. :)
I so have to make one of my own this summer.

I was just catching up with what you have been up too and you have been busy. Love the strip quilt by the way the colours are great.

Fried zucchini sounds scrumptious!
