What is a Barn Quilt?
A barn quilt mural is made of two sheets of high grade plywood (MDO plywood), 8’x8′ square, which has an individual quilt block pattern transferred to the plywood and painted with specifically chosen outdoor paint and sealed to withstand the weather. Other sizes can be made (4’x4′) but the larger size creates a bigger impact.
Looking to add a little character to your barn? Barn quilts are becoming the latest craze in rural America. The barn quilts not only add interest to your barn, but they grab the attention and interest of people driving by your barn. The mission of the barn quilt program is to celebrate quilting as a traditional art form, appreciate the architecture of farm buildings and rural landscapes, promote art appreciation, and stimulate county economic growth while celebrating our agricultural heritage. Barns, corn cribs, public buildings, homes, gardens, open spaces are the locations of mounts chosen for the heritage quilt designs.
