What is a Barn Quilt? Barn quilts have been in the US for 300+ years. They originally started to honor a lost loved one, families painted their family quilt on the barn. Over the years it became a symbol of hospitality to travelers seeking refuge from the weather and maybe a hot meal. Now it’s a rejuvenated folk art for people to decorate their outdoor spaces on barns, shed, garages & houses.
