Everyone loves a hand-made quilt. The quilt is meticulously made with squares that are designed with fabric following a specific pattern. Then the squares, or blocks, are pieced together to form the finished quilt. A Barn Quilt is a large piece of wood that is painted on a substrate (wood or metal), duplicating the pattern of a quilt block. While barn quilts are usually placed on barns, sometimes they might find their way to a fence, garage, house or signs.
