The earliest versions of "Barn Quilts" have been around for hundreds of years.

Just as fabric quilts have their own unique history, so do barn quilts. While barns were not painted back in the day, they were decorated with different types of folk art. This included quilt blocks once paint was readily available and affordable. People chose certain blocks to reflect particular meanings.

In the early 2000's, barn quilts start showing up again, and these are the ones we are used to seeing today. This is also when the first quilt trail began, originating in Ohio.

A quilt trail consists of many barn quilts that are mapped together and visited. Those following along the trail receive a map with all of the locations marked, and viewers drive through the countryside to see all of the blocks. Today there are quilt trails all over the United States. A wide variety of people have created them, including quilt guilds, schools, churches, and 4-H clubs.

Tew Barn Quilts are true to their original primitive beginnings. Each painted on 3/4" thick wood either 2 ft. x 2 ft., 4 ft. x 4 ft. or as large as 8 ft. x 8 ft. and are made to be hung outside on your barn, home, out building, dog house, garage, fence, deck, etc. and should hold up for many years. Our 4' x 4' is our most popular size and will fit nicely on most barns.

The wood is first painted with 4 coats of high quality exterior storm paint  on the front, back & sides of the board. Then the quilt pattern is drawn on the primed wood surface. The design is then hand painted with a minimum of 3-6 coats of paint for each color.
