The story of the American Quilt Trail, featuring the colorful patterns of quilt squares writ large on barns throughout North America, is the story of one of the fastest-growing grassroots public arts movements in the United States and Canada. In Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement Suzi Parron travels through twenty-nine states and two Canadian provinces to visit the people and places that have put this movement on America’s tourist and folk art map. Through dozens of interviews with barn artists, committee members, and barn owners Parron documents a journey that began in 2001 with the founder of the movement, Donna Sue Groves. Groves’s desire to honor her mother with a quilt square painted on their barn became a group effort that eventually grew into a county-wide project. Today, registered quilt squares form a long imaginary clothesline, appearing on more than three thousand barns scattered along one hundred driving trails. With more than fifty full-color photographs, Parron documents a movement that combines rural economic development with an American folk art phenomenon.

Suzi Parron, in cooperation with Donna Sue Groves, documented the massive public art project known as the barn quilt trail in her 2012 book Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement.

Since then, barn quilts have spread throughout forty-eight states and several Canadian provinces. In Following the Barn Quilt Trail, Parron brings readers along as she, her new love, Glen, their dog Gracie, and their converted bus Ruby, leave the stationary life behind. Suzi and Glen follow the barn quilt trail through thirty states across thirteen thousand miles as Suzi collects the stories behind the brightly painted squares. With plentiful color photographs, this endearing hybrid of memoir and travelogue is for quilt lovers, Americana and folk art enthusiasts, or anyone up for a good story.

A drive through Shawano County Wisconsin is very colorful today because more than 300 brillant "quilt blocks," called barn quilts are on display on barns throughout the county. The Shawano County Barn Quilt Project was started by Shawano writer/author Jim Leuenberger in 2010. In June 2010 Jim proposed the idea to local 4-H clubs as a possible club service project. Since then, several clubs have sponsored and painted barn quilts. And individuals have supported the project through sponsoring a quilt and/or having a quilt put on their barn. Shawano County now calls the county the Barn Quilt Capital of Wisconsin, for good reason. I became interested in the project after seeing a barn quilt on my brother's barn and also because my grandfather settled in the area near Norrie, Wisconsin in 1892. I have always been interested in art so I put together two coloring books featuring barn quilts in Shawano County. A barn quilt is made by painting a pattern on two 4' by 8' sheets of 3/4 inch plywood and then mounting them on a barn to form an eight foot square. Two coats of primer are applied to both sides of the boards and the edges. After the pattern is drawn out, Frog (painters) tape is applied. Three coats of each color are applied, with each coat being allowed to dry overnight. After the quilt is finished it is allowed to dry for at least two weeks before it is put upon a barn. Shawano County now calls the county the Barn Quilt Capital of Wisconsin, for good reason. I became interested in the project after seeing a barn quilt on my brother's barn and also because my grandfather settled in the area near Norrie, Wisconsin in 1892.

What can you do with this book? While you're having fun interpreting these designs and coloring, don't forget to think about formulating your own unique patterns. You can produce multiple looks by simply changing color selections. You can: - Choose to fill in with solid colors, either bold or muted tones. You might try shading solid colors to enhance certain areas. = Add floral, geometric, or other patterns-the choice is yours. - Add embellishments using any drawing technique you like. - Try different mediums, such as crayons, colored pencils, markers, gel pens, and so on. Be careful when choosing which medium to use. With certain media, the color will bleed through the page. Remember to insert a blank page under your creation, or better yet, place a piece of card stock behind the page you are coloring. This prevents color bleeds from leaking onto nearby pages. Creative Quilt Coloring has something for everyone. For example, some patterns have large spaces to fill while other patterns are more complex. On the reverse side of each page, you'll find a lighter version of the quilt block for you to keep as a reference. I've also included individual squares colored in grayscale so you can visualize the overall pattern using implied coloring tones. The fun starts when you add your own colorful interpretations to the block patterns. Your creation might be so impressive that you may want to convert your design into an actual quilt made with fabric. For now, let's forget about sewing machines, fabrics, threads, needles, and pins. Find a well-lit space where you can cozy up with your favorite set of pens, pencils, paints, or crayons, and this coloring book. I've given you a choice of 60 patterns-30 vintage and 30 fresh variations. It's time to de-stress and start coloring your cares away!
