    Osceola County in central MI has a brochure at the rest stops showing locations in the area of the barn quilts.

    The Amana Colonies in Iowa have a free brochure that has a map to show where all the barn quilts are. It is a very pretty drive. We are just getting started on barn quilts here in Missouri. Guess you would have to say we're a little slow.LOL

    This one is beautiful, thanks for sharing!
    I have seen a couple in Washington, but can't remember where they are, except the Buggy Barn has one of course! I want to put one on my house but DH thinks I am crazy. Has anyone seen one on a house anywhere?

    Someone told me that when you see a quilt design on a barn
    and then other ones along the way, it is called the quilt trail. I think it is marvelous that the quilt work we do is showcased along our highways.

    I live in Owensboro (Daviess County), Kentucky. Our local quilters with the Daviess County Extension Office started working on Barn Quilts last August and have well over 30 up already with contracts for another 10 or 12 to be finished soon. They have a Facebook page; Daviess County Barn Quilts where you can see pictures of them all. Kentucky has a large collection of Barn quilts in many of its counties. You can go to the Kentucky Arts Council's website and find maps for them all or just google Barn Quilts in your state to see if there are any there.
    My husband and I love to take trips just to look for them and photograph them.
    I was in Shipshewana area last week, where the local quilt shop owner told me they were going to start working on getting a Barn Quilt trail going in that area too.
    Don't they just make you smile???

    I liked them so well I made one to put on our barn.
    Its a 24x24. I cant remember the name of the quilt.
    I want to make another for a shed this year,when it quits raining here.( oregon). :(
    The only people to see it are our two neighbors. We live on a private drive with two neighbors behind us.
    Have a good day.

    Don't you just love em? I would love to have a map of barn quilts and take a road trip. Doesn't that sound like a kick?
