Ashtabula County Barn Quilt Trail

I'm in Ohio with my friend Kat who I met online 20 years ago. Ever since I met her she has been wanting to contribute to her area in some way and now she has!
She has spearheaded the Quilt Trail in her county and has worked hard for 3 1/2 years on it!
She was able to take me to see several quilt blocks.




This is the largest quilt block in the USA. Love the old historic building.

I saw this on my morning walk in Kat's neighborhood!
This was in her neighborhood too.

This is at Kat's house. She is a fan of blue and white quits and has many to show for it.
This is one of three covered bridges that have a quilt block on it.
Of course we had to drive through the covered bridge.

The Grand River from inside the bridge.

Here is the flyer and map! An ongoing job well done!

  1. I love barn quilts and it's always a delight to spy one in an unexpected place. Tillamook County, Oregon also has a nice barn quilt trail that has grown since it's inception a number of years ago. I love spotting the new additions every time I visit.

  2. Welcome to Ohio! I am in the southern half of the state and we have quite a few barn quilts here in Ross and Highland counties courtesy of the historical society. I will be traveling to northern Ohio later this month; perhaps I will get to see a few of these attractions!

  7. I've seen many pictures of these blocks on barns etc, but only one or two in person. And that would be driving by in a fast car! I'm curious how they are made. Are they painted on wood? Or canvas? Some of them look inlaid. How exciting to see one just randomly walking or driving around. You know a quilter is near!

  11. Each block is beautiful, and the entire project must have required hours and hours of dedication to get it all accomplished. Even the map with its descriptions and historical background of each location is a a work of creativity and dedication. I hope those responsible get the recognition they well deserve in their area. Thanks for sharing; wish I could make that drive! ---"Love"
