    In the Civil War, the underground railroad would use quilts on the clothes line to indicate safe place to stay for runaway slaves.

    I love, love, LOVE these! Ever since we started searching for land, I have wanted a barn quilt. We now have the land, but the barn won't be started until spring. Soon I may get to make my barn quilt! You do excellent work.

    Love these! I have some 4x4 plywood I salvaged. This is just what I need to dress up our all white barn. So pretty!

    One of them looks like Mariner's Catch. What is the size you paint for a barn?

    Are you patch work quilting the whole side of the barn?
