Painted to withstand Mother Nature’s seasonal elements, each quilt is one-of-a-kind, hand painted just for you! Barn Quilts are bringing centuries of heritage to your outdoor spaces.Quilts have always been a comforting symbol of home and family. Adding a Barn Quilt to your home or barn, will add beauty to the country, and will be a sign of "welcome home".
