Quilt trail seeks Franklin barns

The Alabama Barn Quilt Trail is actively looking for barns in Franklin County to display quilt blocks.

The quilt trail, established in early 2016, began expanding beyond Lauderdale County in June and is now stretching into Colbert and Franklin. Barn candidates should be of old wood, visible from the road, in good repair and with tidy surroundings. Trail coordinator Dale Robinson said the idea is to promote agricultural tourism. “People are going to be driving by and taking photographs, and they need to be able to see the barn and block clearly,” he said. Selected barns will display hand-painted quilt blocks with traditional patterns, designed in collaboration with the barn owners.

The trail is run by volunteers who are also accepting new volunteers to get involved in the trail. To suggest a barn or volunteer, email alabamabarnquilts@gmail.com.
