A Brief History
What is a Barn Quilt?
A barn quilt is a large piece of painted wood that looks like a single quilt block and decorates the side of a barn. You can see them for yourself in just about every state in the U.S.
Most barn quilts are made of simple geometric shapes; squares, rectangles and triangles, and they’re usually painted in bright, solid colors.
Barn quilts have been around for hundreds of years. In the past, farmers used different types of folk art, including these quilt-like blocks, to decorate their barns. People chose blocks to reflect particular meanings, family heritage, or to honor a loved one.
In the early 2000s, barn quilts became popular again — decorating not only the sides of barns but also houses and garages. You can find the popular Barn Quilt Trail here for your next road trip!
