What Are Barn Quilts? They're quilt patterns, either traditional or custom-designed, painted on wooden boards which are mounted on barns, other farm buildings, houses, businesses, fences, or posts. They generally range in size from 3'x3' to 8'x8' and are usually square. When there are several barn quilts in an area, a quilt barn trail may be established.
What Are Quilt Barn Trails? They're driving tours that pass by barn quilts in an area. The trails are usually managed by a steering committee, which may be a municipal or community group. The trails celebrate rural architecture and quilt-making while promoting local tourism. Beebe Farm IdeaWorks has several barn quilts on the Helderberg Quilt Barn Trail in Albany County, NY. Download and print HQBT's guide and map, then drive around the Helderberg Hilltowns to see the barn quilts.
