Holiday Quilting Fun!
As for me--I am giving away FOUR of my incredibly beautiful barn quilt calendars, to four of you who respond. Here are a couple of pages. You can see the fabulous cover and the rest of the images in the box on the right side of the page:
How do you win? Add a comment below telling us which quilt trail is nearest to your home. If you have seen a quilt trail--that's easy enough! Note that you must respond with a URL or email address to win!
If you haven't, visit barnquiltinfo.com and check out the map. Once you have found a quilt trail close to you, post a comment telling us where you live and where the quilt trail is. Don't worry, I'm not going to check Google Maps to see whether you are correct!
The giveaway will last until Saturday, the 17th, when I will randomly select a winner from those who responded.

Love the barn quilts. We drove through western Iowa last summer on State highways in O'Brien and Plymouth counties to see as many as we could. On the way home, we drove through Clay, Buena Vista, and Sac counties so we could see more. We're in eastern NE, those are probably the closest.ReplyDelete
Looking to see what is closest to New Zealand would have to the Lake County Quilt Trail in the State of CaliforniaReplyDelete

I love Barn Quilts! I would love a calendar to hang up in my sewing space. I live in New Hampshire...there aren't any quilt trails really close. I guess there are a few quilts sprinkled around Vermont, but the closest trail according to the site is in Neversink, NY. Road Trip!!ReplyDelete
Terry County Quilt Trail & Show in TexasReplyDelete
I had no idea about this interesting trail. My trail, in Randolph County, Arkansas, is about 225 miles from me. Thanks for bringing this information to my attention!ReplyDelete

The Wardsville "Quilt Barn" trail is my nearest here in Ontario - in fact we spotted it on a trip through there, where we go thru frequently to my folks home (it's about 7 hrs. drive from us!) and I went online after getting home to find out more - will be looking again before Christmas when we pass by again - fun and interesting!ReplyDelete
Quilted Corners of Wyalusing, PA is closest to me.ReplyDelete

As far as i ma concerned the entire state of Missouri is a quilt trail, you can drive over almost any byway and find at least one barn quilt. But I did go look and The Boonslick Trail is the closest. http://www.missouribarnquilts.com/ Thanks for the chance to win a book I have coveted for a long time.ReplyDelete
Due to living in Australia the nearest one to me is the ones in California, although I would love to say there are ones here, I can't find any information about them. Such a shame, I would love to follow a quilt trail.ReplyDelete
I live across the lake from Trigg County KY where a couple of Quilt Block barns are located. I would like to see more Quilt Block Barns on my side of the lakes as I live near Paducah, KY, so called Quilt City USA. I did have the pleasure of seeing several barns in IL, WI, MN and Iowa while I was taking a much needed vacation by myself a year ago. The Quilt Blocks dressed up newly painted barns as well as those that have seen many years of use. They were the bright sites of my trip.ReplyDelete
Love the web site and thanks for offering the calendar.
I live an hour North of raleigh, NC so the nearest trail is about 4 to 5 hours from me in Iredell County in the Western part of the state.ReplyDelete

The closest barn trail to me is Kankakee County, IL however we would see them during our trips to Wisconsin in Racine County. Thanks!ReplyDelete

I am so surprised there aren't any quilt trails in Oklahoma! The nearest one to me would be in Kansas and I mapped it to make sure! :DReplyDelete
I live 50 miles away from Kalona, Iowa which has many barn quilts and the city has added quilt blocks in the bricks of the sidewalks. Also done the barn quilts tour around the Shipshewanna, IN area. Thanks for the great giveaways.ReplyDelete
Texas would be the closest trail to NM, but I did see the quilt on the Dairy Barn in Athens Ohio when I went to QSDS last yearReplyDelete
Whenever we drive from our home in north central Iowa to visit my mom in NE Iowa, I'm fortunate to drive among the Barn Quilts of Fayette County. I've had photos of many of those quilts in my computer for several years.ReplyDelete
That's only one county north of the barn quilts of Buchanan County, but I haven't enjoyed any of those yet. I see a road trip in my future.
Thanks for this generous giveaway, Suzi.
I am nearest the Booneslick trail in Missouri.ReplyDelete
I am near the Quilt trail in Osceola County in Michigan. I am not sure if it is an official trail or if they just decided to have their own but we have over 30 quilt barns in this small rural county. It is pretty cool.ReplyDelete

This is super neat!! Coshocton Cty in Ohio appears closest to us. I would love to visit sometime!ReplyDelete
I love the barn quilts and have followed several trails....Ohio, Kentucky mostly. I guess the closest is the one in northern Indiana around Plymouth. I've been on part of it. We have a few scattered quilt barns in southern Indiana, but no real trail. Love the calendars! Hope I win! email@example.comReplyDelete
none in Florida so I guess the closet one to Pensacola FL would be the Gee's Bend in AlabamaReplyDelete
I would really, really love to win one of these...I love barns and I love quilting.ReplyDelete
I live near the Upper Cumberland Quilt Trail in Tennessee. I haven't been on it yet, but I have passed by a few on the highway.ReplyDelete
Barn Quilts have not been in Texas until very recently, Terry County, I think it is, is the first to start a quilt trail, which is good coz I LOVE barn quilts! Thank you for the opportunity to win :)ReplyDelete
The Tillamook County Quilt Trail would be the closest. I live in the Yukon in northern Canada. But we can get Tillamook cheese up here and it is delicious. And in a town about an hour from where I live there is a house that has four or five quilts painted on its outside walls..... Thanks for entering me in your draw.ReplyDelete
hehe no quilt trails here in France but if I ever get back over the pond again, Im intending to go on a trail, we live in a converted barn and id love to hang a quilt block off itReplyDelete
Iredell County in NC is the closest Barn Quilt. I didn't know that until going to your website. I lead an online quilt group and we have posted articles and websites as a topic of conversation, so I was quite aware of them. I did see a couple while traveling in TN. My neighbor put up a shed the shape of a barn that can be seen directly from my back sliding glass door. I keep telling my hubby I am going to paint a quilt block and hand it on the backside of it. What do you think?ReplyDelete
I have to admit that I had never heard of a quilt trail until I read it here. I can assure you that my quilting buddy and I will hit the road and check out the ones in Georgia, probably the Powder Springs one first. Thanks for a great way to share quilting.ReplyDelete
I'm by the Washington, IA trail but haven't gone on it. We do have a lot of barns around here that have quilts on them. Great giveaway!ReplyDelete
I don't live near a barn quilt trail. It sure sounds like a wonderful vacation.ReplyDelete
I would love to win the barn quilt calendar. 2 years ago some quilt buddies and I went on a road trip looking for barn quilts and of course quilt shops.ReplyDelete
What a neat idea, I had no idea that there was a barn quilt trail in Oregon, that is the closest to BC, and I look forward to visiting all the sites thereReplyDelete
I live just a few miles away from the Country Barn Quilt Trail of Western NY--and have traveled it! Enjoyed the day!ReplyDelete
I think the closest is the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail in Wahalla, SC. But before looking at the map I thought the closest was in NC. I live NW SC and did not even know there were any in SC. Just knew about NC. Now have more choices. Thanks for the info and Thanks for the chance for winning.ReplyDelete
Figured out that there is one even in Ontario: the Wardsville Quilt Barn trail. It's a couple of hours away, but when visiting that area in the future, will have to keep my eyes peeled for them. Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
I was quite surprised to see any quilt trail near me in CA...there is one in Lake county, and if I am not misunderstanding...just one barn there in California! I am from the midwest & am homesick for the lovely barns & pastureland near where I grew up. Would move back if job permitted. I have been online to the quilt trail in several states back a few years ago. Thanks for the opportunity for a quilt calendar with barns & fields.ReplyDelete
Fort Morgan, Colorado is the closest quilt trail to me. It's several hours away, but I'll have to go visit!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway, and the tip! ;)
Wardsville is the closest to me. Had never heard of these trails before. Definitely a summer excursion next summer.ReplyDelete

Wonderful Site and Blog. Thanks for Sharing Quilts. my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a quilt trail very close to me--right in my back yard, in fact. Osceola Quilt Trail, in Osceola County, Michigan.ReplyDelete
There's even a quilt block on my garage.
if my geography is right the nearest quilt trail for me is in New Jersey in Middlesex - I'm pretty sure the east coast of the US is closer to Germany then the west coast ...ReplyDelete
There is a quilt trail just west of Rochester, NY. Love to go and just look-especially in the fall.ReplyDelete
I'd like to start a quilt trail in New Haven IN at Jefferson Park where the Maumee Valley Antique Steam & Gas Association is located. What incredible fun! I took a friend of mine, Rita, on a road trip last year...I'm directionly challenged so to speak (Nov. BD, I got a GPS!) anyway, she yelled at me to stop out in no man's land, and there on a very old barn was a barn quilt. I drove down the long lane, she got out of the car with her walker and phone and took a photo of it! If people were in the house they probably thought what are those two old ladies doing?! hahahaha A good memory!ReplyDelete
The closest one is Kankakee County Illinois, since I live in Mchenry County. lnb1191(at)aol(dot)comReplyDelete
I see Barn Quilts all over Ohio. Thought about making a small one for over my tool shed!ReplyDelete

I love barn quilts. Just a tribute to our history.
I love Barns and barn quilts.ReplyDelete
We have lots of barn tours right at my back door in neighboring counties of Athens and Vinton County, OHIO.
I painted a 2'x2' piece of exterior plywood as a quilt block to showcase my house numbers! That's how much I love barn quilts. We travel the trail in the mountains of NC along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Love those barns.ReplyDelete
Hope you visit my blog to check out my wooden quilt block.
Hugs from Mary
I am Canadian and have never seen a barn quilt in Canada. However I travel to and from Fl;orida each year and have seen a few along the eastern states. I actually intend to start making barn quilts next summer and introduce them to Nova Scotia! I'd love to have your calendar because I love barn quilts!ReplyDelete
Well, I live in northwest Wyoming - near Jackson Hole and there aren't any that are very close at all. I guess the closest is in Colorado - a good 8 hour drive.ReplyDelete
Nothing in Louisiana so I am guessing that Texas might be the closest.ReplyDelete
I am near Green, Rock, and Walworth counties in WI. I love driving and spotting the barns while we are out driving. I'm sure my husband thinks I'm nuts getting excited to see those barns. LOLReplyDelete
Probably the quilt trail in Tennessee is closest to me. I'm in VA. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win one of your beautiful calendars!!ReplyDelete
