“A barn quilt is basically a large piece of wood that is painted to look like a large quilt block. We have a long history in our country of hanging barn quilts outside our homes and barns. They were thought to bring good luck and prosperity.  Some 200 years ago when there wasn't enough paint to paint an entire barn, women would take a pattern of a quilt block that grandma had made and would paint barn quilts to hang on their barns.  It was a way to decorate their farms and also was a source of family pride.” – Abby Hicks
