Barn Quilt Quest
Embark on the Barn Quilt Quest*! Utilize this interactive map to locate Barn Quilt locations across southeast Nebraska. Many participants learned to paint quilt blocks during workshops hosted by Homestead National Monument of America. Barn quilts are painted quilt squares mounted on a barn or outdoor structure. Just as fabric quilts have their own unique history, so do barn quilts. People chose or designed certain blocks to reflect particular meanings. Take a tour of small towns and the countryside to explore the many colorful Barn Quilt blocks that dot the landscape, each with meaning and significance to those that created them.
