Barn Quilt

The Posy Collection, a historic needlework collection by designer Posy Lough, has chosen the artwork on a Johnson City barn to represent Tennessee in the new American Quilt Trail Redwork Kit.

Barn quilts from across the U.S., including the one in Washington County, were selected for the redwork kit, which features a form of needle art using only red thread on neutral-colored fabric.

Barn quilts, which can be seen all over the country, are patterns of quilt squares painted on panels and hung on the sides of barns. Usually, the quilt tells a story that is unique to its owner or about the barn that it hangs on.
