This unique barn quilt, located in Avery County, NC was created by local folk artist Heidi Fisher. It is called "Spizorinktum", which was a term coined by the grandmother of the barn's owner and means "energy". There is a great story about this barn quilt in Suzi Parron's book "Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement".

Explore the Southwest Ontario Barn Quilt Trail. This one is called Next Door neighbour, derived from a period when the Thames River valley was sparsely settled, meaning visiting one's neighbour was a rare treat.
