Central MN Barn Quilt Trail
Barn Quilts, quilt blocks painted on wood squares, have a rich history as an artistic expression in rural areas throughout the United States. This year, Central Minnesota is joining this artistic revival with a new Barn Quilt Trail.
Barn Quilts of Central MN is working within Wadena, Todd, Morrison, and Cass counties to create a richly woven trail of Barn Quilts for all to enjoy.
Art is being created and displayed by area residents and business owners on barns, buildings, and fence posts. Each Barn Quilt is uniquely and carefully crafted to reflect its sponsor and last for generations.
Take a tour of our Barn Quilt Trail as it leads you into our friendly communities and out into the beautiful Central Minnesota countryside.
Our trail map/brochure was funded by a grant from the Staples Motley Area Community Foundation and developed J & J Solutions, LLC. The barn quilt icons on the brochure were created by Beth Kern. The cover photo is Spinning Star.
You can pick it up at the Staples Historic Depot on highway 10 in Staples, MN.
