Barns across America

Anita Ruesch

Machine pieced and some hand applique. Machine quilted by Sue DiVarco

The barn-quilt movement is spreading across the country as rural communities create "barn trails" to showcase the combination of farm life and quilting. This tradition started in 2001 in Adams county, Ohio, where Donna Sue Groves painted a quilt on the family's barn to honor her mother, an avid quilter. Eleanor Burns' book outlines the history of the American Barns and quilt blocks.
