Quilt Barn Pictures

Yancey County, North Carolina, is just one of the quilt barn trail communities you'll find throughout the United States. Travel to the county and you'll see colorful, painted quilt blocks displayed on all sorts of buildings, from barns and businesses to public buildings and personal residences.

All of the photos in this gallery were taken in Burnsville, the Yancey county seat, but you'll find many more scattered throughout the area (and in adjacent counties).

Barn quilt projects have become increasingly popular in recent years, and the trend is growing. As a child, during family trips, I remember watching for the Pennsylvania Dutch hex symbols that were often painted on barns, and find the barn quilt projects a wonderful extension of that practice.
