Alabama Barn Quilt Trail Guidelines
Our Process for Barn Selection
Interested barn owners should contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please click the link below to download and print the Trail Application. You may send the application to the address on the form, or to the email address listed above. We also ask that you send us a few pictures of the barn. Both from the road and closer up. Be sure to include your contact info.
Barns should be tidy and in good condition, unobstructed by trees, bushes, or other buildings and close enough to a road to afford a good view as well as a safe place to pull over and take pictures.
When we receive your submission, someone from the committee we will personally check out the barn and contact you.
The committee will review the submission and if approved, you can then begin to pick out a quilt block pattern.
Blocks must be based on a traditional quilt block or a family heirloom quilt and contain NO political messages, family initials or advertising. Blocks and color choices must be approved by the committee. The artist will often meet with the owners to decide on a final pattern and colors.
The minimum size for barn quilt blocks to be included on the trail is 4'X4'.
