I promised to post pictures of the quilt squares that my neighbors in North Carolina have made and put on their houses. But when I went back through my photos, I discovered that they were not good enough to give you a good picture (as it were.) We're going there for Christmas, so I'll take some better photos and post them later.
Are you familiar with quilt squares? They're large paintings of quilt motifs that appear on barns in rural areas of the country. North Carolina has several quilt trails and it's fun to drive through the countryside and locate them. Middle Tennessee has one, as does the Upper Cumberland and East Tennessee. Arkansas has a different version, with full size quilts photographically applied to vinyl and mounted on the sides of buildings. I couldn't find one in West Tennessee - what's up with that?
I made a quilt square for my house there. You can read about it here.
