Miami County Barn Quilts

"One of Ohio's county's quest to connect its rural towns led to a painted trail." Check out Mary Quinley's article in Quilter Magazine for a great story on this amazing project.

With over 60 quilt patterns scattered across Miami County its hard not to find one of these in your travels through the county. I just wished I had got to this sooner. Three years exposed to the elements has started to take its toll on some of these.

I started a side bar slide-show to display these as I find/receive them but have decided to add it to the bottom of the post section to get a bigger picture.

I could not find a printed guide but there is an interactive map on the Visit Miami County web site.

If you have pictures of these barns you would like to share please send them to
