Decorating with barn quilts is a newer idea that is catching on like wildfire. The options for colors and patterns are endless. They look great in a farmhouse as part of a gallery wall or a stand alone piece. The possiblities are endless for what a barn quilt can look like and where in your home you can hang one on the wall.
The history of barn quilts is sweet!
Donna Sue Groves came up with the idea to honor her mother. The first barn quilt was painted on an actual barn in 2001. Now these popular pieces of art have made their way indoors.
They are typically found painted on a piece of single wood, or they can be pieces of different colored wood put together to make up a geometric pattern or they can actually be a quilt square that is framed and hung.
