A Stevens County Barn Quilt Trail has been organized as a project of the Stevens County Historical Society. We
are excited that we now have several families with at least 20 barn quilts in various stages of completion. Some are already mounted on a building, some are still on the drawing board.
Barn quilts are colorful designs painted on wood panels and mounted on exterior structures, ranging from small ones mounted on homes or on posts, to large ones mounted on a barn. Locations will be revealed this summer when we create a map and brochure showing all the barn quilts.
Imagine a barn quilt of your own in bold colors, accompanied by a personal story of the meaning behind the
design, and you can readily see why we expect this project to grow in numbers each year. If you want more information about this project, please contact the Museum at info(at)stevenshistorymuseum.com or 320-589-1719. We would love to “blanket the county with barn quilts!”
