A dedication ceremony was held on December 8 for the new Community Barn Quilt Project which has been installed on the eastern wall of the Alexander County Services Center in downtown Taylorsville. A work in progress, project coordinators believe this display will attract more visitors to the county and town as barn quilt enthusiasts become aware of the new installation. Read More>>

Barn Quilt Squares are a welcome sign to any barn, garage, outbuilding or front porch. I paint 2' x 2' and 4' x 4' squares by order. These can be delivered or picked up at our farm.

Our boards are primed and painted both on the back and front. A sealer is applied to the front side of the board when the painting is finished.

I can create a customized Barn Quilt Square from a photo if you are interested in a certain design or theme.

The History of
Barn Quilt Squares

Barn Quilt Squares were started in Ohio by a lady who wanted to honor her mother with a quilt square on her barn; so the first Barn Quilt Trail was started in 2001 with the design of the Ohio star. This is the design that I offer in my classes for each to start painting. There are 43 states that have Barn Quilt Trails.
