    Barn quilts are large-scale quilt squares painted on plywood or directly onto the outside of barns to celebrate the tradition of quilting, the enduring majesty of rural barn structures and all the communities whose shared appreciation has turned this local art form into a national phenomenon. It’s difficult to pinpoint the various ways barn quilts touch people’s lives; they often serve as memorials to lost relatives, sources of pride that bring families together, or just as beautiful displays of public art. There are thousands of barn quilts, many of which are strung together into local driving trails, that span 30 states from New York down to Texas.
