Nestled in the resort town of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, is this quaint coffee house called "Off The Rail." It is called that because it is right next to railroad tracks, no longer being used.
I am lucky enough to live only a few minutes from there and frequent it often. Each summer the farmers market is held in Elkhart Lake, and people gather, musicians play, and everyone has a great time. I photographed the coffee house one day and decided to use one of the photos for this art quilt. Each person in the scene has his or her own story to tell, and the musicians are wonderful ladies, who live in the community. The art quilt measures 27 1/2" X 17 1/2" and is raw-edged fused applique and machine quilted by me. I have used a couched yarn binding to finish the edge. Beautiful, vivid colors of reds, greens, and blues. As always, a hanging rod is furnished FREE and shipping is also FREE in the US and Canada. Please ask me any questions you may have; I am always happy to respond. Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shoppe.

Another amazing quilt from Barbara. I step back in time whenever i look at it. Beautiful design, top-notch craftsmanship, and a thing of beauty. I could fill my whole house with Barb's quilts!!
Hawkeye arrived very quickly and was well packaged. I absolutely love him! The workmanship is fantastic and the quilting gives the quilt such great detail. Well worth the money. Thank you.
Beautiful piece of art! I loved browsing the other quilts and am excited to be able to own one. What a talent! The quilt was shipped very fast and beautifully packaged. I will definitely be back!
I LOVE this quilt - which is like a painting and a story. The craftsmanship and composition is superb! I marvel at the skilled and thoughtful details -i.e., shading with various colored fabrics and prints. I wake up everyday to this quilt on my wall and it puts a smile on my face. I am SO happy with this purchase!
