Host a Quilt Block

How to Host a Quilt Block:

Getting onto the "BARN QUILT TRAIL" starts with a contact to the New Jersey Barn Quilt Association: info@njbarnquilts.com - Whether you have an old barn, wagon shed, farm stand or other agricultural building; we would like you to consider a barn quilt to add beauty and increase the tourism traffic to your area/business.

You can get your own quilt block by completing a simple application, (available below). We will help you to find just the right block to tell your story. A list of quilt blocks already claimed has been compiled and is attached to the guidelines, available by clicking on the link below.

We are trying hard not to duplicate any patterns, so that you can have fun finding the various blocks and not see the same block twice. We are working to produce a brochure, with descriptions of the quilt blocks and directions to the various farms. Stay tuned for updates on these!
