Another year has passed and the Hardy County Barn Quilt Trail, a project of the Lost River Educational Foundation, is almost a reality and we are entering our second season of designing and painting of barn quilts. Thanks to a lot of community support the Barn Quilt Trail is coming together and by the time of Heritage Weekend this year we’ll hopefully have at least seven Barn Quilts hung in Hardy County. The Wardensville Garden Market has donated the use of the old Barr’s Market as a studio. They also have one of the first barn quilts on the trail displayed at their old barn in Wardensville. The Barn Quilt trail has received a second grant from Hardy County Tour and Craft and the Hardy County Convention and Visitors Bureau is generously offering four grants each year to help defray the costs to purchasers of barn quilts. A barn quilt tour map is being developed for distribution to the public as a guide. The Barn Quilt Trail is proud to announce that one of these will be a brand new barn quilt hung on the historic Mathias Barn which will be featured on this year’s Heritage Weekend tile. Be sure to visit the Mathias Barn during the weekend and beyond to see how a barn quilt enhances the visibility of a barn. We look forward to working with anyone in Hardy County who wants a barn quilt on their barns or homes. Follow us on Facebook and send an email to email@example.com.
