The Centennial Barn is the home of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild and I can't tell you how happy I am that our group meets there. I've always wanted to quilt in a barn and now I actually have the opportunity to! I have to thank our member and my friend, Sue, for finding the place and coordinating the rental agreement. It's seriously such an inspiring place to be. Here are some photos that I took before our last meeting a couple of weeks ago.
The barn sits on the grounds of the convent of the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor and was built in 1898. It was a working barn for many years before it was remodeled last year as meeting space. I love that the architects kept many of the original exterior and interior elements, including the large barn door.
This the the set of doors on the front side of the barn that you see as you approach it from the road.
looked like this one originally?
And a few more architectural details of the barn. I couldn't stop taking pictures!
