As part of the celebration, I am participating in a quilting blog giveaway. Now, this isn't a traditional quilting blog, but quilters do love barn quilts, and many of my followers are quilters. In fact, I visited over thirty quilt guilds last year as a program speaker!
The giveaway is part of a quilt blogger's event--click on the image below to find out about all of the goodies up for grabs.
SO--you may be asking--what I am giving away and how you can enter.
I am giving away an autographed copy of my book, Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement. I am so pleased and proud of the reception that the book has received and am delighted to share a copy with a lucky quilter. I have visited with a lot of quilt groups lately and have found that quilters--even those who have never seen a barn quilt--LOVE barn quilts!.
How do you enter? Go to the map at my website Barn Quilt Info and find the quilt trail closest to you.
Comment below with your location and the location where barn quilts can be found nearest to your home.
One week from today, March 15, I will randomly select a winner and will notify you via this site.
Good luck and happy spring!
Speaking of spring, I will be in Paducah for a book signing during quilt week this year! Come by the museum between 10 AM and noon; I'd love to see you!

I'm in the coast mountains in Oregon, and the nearest (and only!) quilt barns are in Tillamook County up the coast -- there are lots of dairies up there and that's where they make Tillamook cheese.

The closest to me is the Garrett County Quilt Trail in Maryland, but I've been finding that this is addictive, as I have been spending the last 2 hours clicking on other states where we have family.
