    Is it possible to go around the county, see the barns and take photos? Or do we need to arrange it with someone?

  2. Barn Quilts says:

    You sure can! Tour maps can be found on the website. Guides can also be found at the Carver County fair, library locations, local area businesses & at the historical society. Enjoy!

  3. Nan Emmer says:

    Love this idea! It has been so much fun participating in the painting at the Suzanne’s barn! Will print out a map and take the long way home to see some of these incredible barns and quilt art!
    Thanks for doing this!

  4. Kristina says:

    I’ve seen three of these quilts now and wondered what they were about. Just goggled it and found this explanation! As a quilter and lover of history and rural life, I think this idea is wonderful!

  5. Barn Quilts says:

    Thank you Kristina!!. We do too. Look for more barn quilts appearing in the spring. Volunteer opportunities will start up again too. Enjoy, Naomi

  6. Barb says:

    I knew that this was being done out east and in Iowa, but I did not know that they were around this area. I am printing the map and will take my camera with me. Thanks for doing this!! I’ve also seen this on Elenor Burns Quilt in a Day!

  7. Lois Fiskness says:

    I’d like to volunteer to assist with the next “series” of barn quilts as I think it is such a great idea. I want to paint a barn quilt for the barn at my family farm in Waseca Country. The pattern I plan to use is “Corn and Beans” so I’d love the first hand experience before I start my project.

  8. Barn Quilts says:

    Hi Lois. We would love to have you join us! And think it’s great to hear about our neighbors continuing the trail. See you in the spring!!!

  9. Ruth says:

    Was wondering if a bus tour of the barns will be offered to the public? If not, is a person able to drive on the farm and view the quilt on the barn and take pictures?

  10. Marty Bradbury says:

    I’m anxious to take the tour. My neighbors and I painted smaller versions of barn quilts for gates, sheds and gardens. Maybe the whole world will be a quilt someday!

  11. Barn Quilts says:

    Wouldn’t that be great! Enjoy your tour and look for more barn quilts in the spring.

  12. Barn Quilts says:

    Barn tours are just beginning to be scheduled. Check our website, your local quilt shop or community education catalog for upcoming guided tours. If your group is interested in booking a tour you can contact us through the website. If you prefer simply spend an afternoon with friends touring by car. Guide maps available online. Feel free to pack a picnic lunch, At the Farm & Deardorff Orchards would love to have you stop in and say hi.

  13. Barn Quilts says:

    It’s been our pleasure. Enjoy!

    I was planning to take three family members ( 2 sisters and a sister-in-law) on a Mystery Trip on Saturday September 8, 2012. I had sent an E-mail to the website asking if there was anything I neded to know before our trip.

    Naomi:Project Director, E-mailed back telling me that they were in the process of updating the web-site and that there additional barns to see…not the 13 that I had planned, but, now there were 24.

    With the new information in hand (additional addresses and a new map) and my GPS we set out on a beautiful Saturday morning…I myself not having been to the Carver County area… had to rely on the GPS for our 1st stop, as my passengers did not yet know where we were headed (only one had an inkling).

    After a wrong turn and a U-Turn… what excitement and surprise in the car when my passengers spotted the 1st barn this point they received their own printed packet of the barn quilt tour and they were able to help with finding our next site.

    We had a great day, we saw 19 of the 24 barn quilts, had lunch in Waconia and still had time to stop at the quilt shop.

    Thanks for all the good information on your website!
