Barn quilts are the fastest growing grassroots public art display in the country. Locally, quilts are painted on large wooden squares that are mounted on the sides of many historic barns.
Twelve squares will be placed on barns along the Back Roads and Beaches Multi-sport trail, which stretches from Lake Erie to Findley State Park.
The program is being coordinated by the Community Foundation, 4-H Club and Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (FAVA). The quilt square shown in this picture is located at Miller's Apple Hill.
