The Barn Quilt Trail

I have always had an interest in barn quilts. A few years ago I started photographing barn quilts on both the western end and eastern end of the trail.

For those who are not familiar with barn quilts, they were original placed on barns as a sign of welcome and friendship. They have since been recognized as pieces of art.

Western Carolina – Marion/Flatrock Area

Most barn quilts like these are patterned after traditional quilt blocks. Most are constructed of plywood or sometimes barn wood.
Some like these are very whimsical.
While others display information or lifestyles.
There are those that relate to the type of business like these ice cream cones that referenced an ice cream shop that was also housed in this building.
This one captured a moment in time.

These guitars quickly let visitors know where the local music shop was.

Eastern North Carolina – Martin County

This was in a campground.

Thank you for taking this journey with me on the Barn Quilt Trail.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
