A barn quilt is wood painted to look like a quilt block used to adorn homes, buildings, and barns. Right now it is the fastest growing folk art tradition. The simple geometric shapes and bold beautiful colors of this American folk art often reflect particular meanings. All supplies included but bring a 12” ruler and a hairdryer!

  • Learn the history and significance of barn quilts
  • Paint on a 12" wooden square
  • Choose from a variety of templates to graph your pattern
  • Receive guidance on techniques to paint a beautiful quilt
