Please note that property owners of all barn quilts listed have been contacted and have given their permission to be listed on the map. All sites are on private property and should be viewed from the road unless otherwise indicated at the site or if a business open to the public. Please be careful and respectful with both their personal property and you while visiting area barn quilts. Use caution while slowing down or stopping along our roads.
Quilt blocks on the trail may be located in rural areas with limited services. Prior to starting the tour, be sure you have a full tank of fuel and a map in the event cellular service is not available.
The safety and enjoyment of travelers and owners is extremely important. Drive with caution and be aware of children, cyclists, farm machinery, farm animals, deer, and other wildlife. Quilt blocks that are located at active farms may be home to various animals grazing in the fields. Please do not attempt to feed or to pet the animals.
Most quilt blocks are located on private property. Please respect the owner’s privacy and do not trespass onto the property. When visiting a location, remain in your vehicle unless the quilt block is located at a business.
Travelers are advised to take all necessary safety precautions when viewing quilt blocks from roadways. When approaching a quilt block location, be aware of traffic and park safely. Some roads in the trail have a minimal shoulder. Pull off the road as far as possible. Once stopped, enable your hazard lights especially if you plan to take photographs.
