Last year, I wrote about how Kentucky is doing a quilt trail right now in ten eastern counties that feature painted quilt squares hung on barns.
And in Tennessee, they are doing the Appalachian Quilt Trail:
…they’re doing preorders for a special quilt trail car tag too.
There are more quilt trails: western North Carolina, Alcona County in Michigan, western New York…
Here in Alabama, there are a set of ten Gee’s Bend quilt designs made into murals (real 8 ft. x 8ft. on plywood murals, not quilt designs on barns) that were finished and installed around Gee’s Bend last year.
There’s a company in North Carolina called Way Back When Barn Quilts that will even ship premade/prepainted barn quilts with the hardware necessary to hang them:
…and will take custom orders for patterns they don’t stock.
