Each barn quilt pattern shown below has a story of its own. Be sure to read the background on each pattern below. I’ll be adding new ones frequently, so check back often! Retired patterns are still available upon request and can be seen on the Customer Photos tabs.
I just love the history of fabric quilt patterns and they convert so well to barn quilts. Many patterns go back to the 1800’s and are a part of national history. I hope you enjoy their history as much as I do. Some of the patterns are just plain fun!

OHIO STAR BARN QUILT
The Ohio Star pattern is a simple “9 Patch” quilt block pattern where 4 of the blocks are further divided into triangles making an 8 pointed star. It is made in bright red, white and blue. The pattern has been in use on fabric quilts since 1803 when Ohio became the 17th state of this great nation! There is much discussion among historians about the actual date in which Ohio became a state, after all the fledgling nation was still trying to figure out how to allow new territories into the newly founded More Perfect Union.
STARS AND STRIPES BARN QUILT
This is a favorite patriotic pattern in the flag colors of red, white and blue. It is made to go “on point” (diamond shaped). This looks especially beautiful on a white fence or wall. This is available in 2′ size and larger. For your information when placed “on point” a:

AMERICAN FLAG BARN QUILT
There have been many folk art variations of the American Flag designed. This one is my own design and has been trademarked. These pattern reflects our patriotism and our cherished American values, and I would love to make one for you! This one is a salute to the Armed Forces made in bright red, white and blue with 5 small stars in the lower right corner representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. The placement of the 5 small stars may vary slightly with the size of the barn quilt.
As we all know, Betsy Ross first designed the flag for George Washington in 1776-1777 but did you know that according to legend she allegedly finalized the design, arguing for stars with five points (Washington had suggested six) because the cloth could be folded and cut out with a single snip.
PATRIOTIC PINWHEEL BARN QUILT
Nothing say “Americana” better than a Patriotic Pinwheel. It is made in red, white and blue with center blue star, a double red border, blue corners and corner white stars.

UNITED STATES AIR FORCE BARN QUILT WITH 6 STARS
I was asked to make this for a retired United States Air Force veteran. I love the way it turned out in bright red, white and blue with a blue border. What a nice gift for an active duty family or veteran. I have added 6 stars, one to represent each branch of the military since we now have Space Force too. This is available in 2′ and larger sizes only. The USAF logo is too intricate to paint in a smaller size.
UNITED STATES AIR FORCE PLUS STAR
I was asked to make this for a retired United States Air Force veteran also. I love the way it turned out in bright red, white and blue with a white border (the border is difficult to see in the picture). What a nice gift for an active duty family or veteran. Since I paint on the USAF logo (rather than use a sticker logo) this is available in the 2′ and larger sizes only. The logo is too intricate to paint on an 18″ barn quilt.

MARINER’S STAR BARN QUILT
A Mariner’s Compass is my all-time favorite design in two shades of red, green and blue. My most treasured fabric quilt is a Mariner’s Compass from the mid 1800’s. The design is comprised of a star that radiates from the center and usually has 16 points, like a magnetic compass. It is one of the earliest quilting designs in America dating back to the early 1700’s. It is sometimes called a wind rose or compass rose. The first known quilt using this pattern was made in England in 1726 and was later used by women in the “colonies” along the Atlantic seaboard. The Mariner’s Star is made with points in blues, reds and greens on a white background with blue borders.
The Midnight Star pattern is a variation on the Mariner’s Star pattern. In yellows and deep blue it reminds you of a star in the midnight sky, hence the name.
FOUR FALL LEAVES BARN QUILT
