Ohio Barn Quilts
Raw file: garminbarnquilt02.gpx (99.89 KB)
A woman named of Donna Sue started what are now the large, brightly colored barn quilt squares appearing on barns throughout the Midwest and East. In Ohio in 2001, she made the first remodeled block of a barn quilt square in honor of her mother. Typically, the squares are 8' x 8' and made with two sheets of 4' x 8' plywood. The pattern can be taken from any quilt block or from the imagination of the artist. Bright colors and bold contrasting patterns stand out better from a distance than intricate designs with subtle shading.
