More barns...with barn quilt!

quilt barns: Apparently this grass roots art movement began in 2001 and has spread to 16 states and 900 barns, adopted by rural communities as a way to honor the craft of quilt making and farming expressed through public art.

In 1989, Donna Sue Groves along with her mother, Maxine, bought a farm in Adams County,Ohio. On the property was a small and rather plain tobacco barn. Donna Sue had an idea to have a quilt square painted on this barn to honor her mother who was a master quilter and show the pride of their Appalachian heritage. In 2001, Donna suggested that rather than paint the quilt square on the barn herself, the community should come together and not only help with her barn, but create a driving trail ...
