This map will help promote area barn quilts, celebrate community arts, and let enthusiasts know where to find barn quilts around St. Lawrence County to come check out. Fill out this form to let us know all the Ws about your barn quilt!    

What is a barn quilt?
A barn quilt is a painted wooden or metal square featuring a single block of a traditional quilt pattern. They are usually based on traditional quilt block patterns, and sometimes include new imagery, that expresses something about the maker’s own identity, heritage, or interests. They can range in size from 1’x1’ to 8’x8’, in publicly visible locations such as on barn, garage, or house walls on their property.  

Multiple Barn Quilt Listings

If you would like to list more than one barn quilt, please fill out a separate form for each.
