The Quilt Barn Trail is composed of large wood blocks that have been hand-painted in traditional quilt patterns that hold some significance to the area or farm where it is located.
The Quilt Barn Trail highlights Tualatin Valley’s agricultural and historical heritage and showcases public art pieces celebrating the art of quilting.
All 59 quilt panels have been installed at area farms and agriculture-related businesses. Each panel tells the story of the property owners and their unique relationship to quilting.

As you drive from one to the next, imagine each unique panel sewn together as one quilt, representing the rich and diverse heritage of Tualatin Valley.
Please note that Quilt Barn Trail is meant to be a driving route, and several quilt barns are located on private property, and access may be limited.
The patterned blocks along the Quilt Barn Trail highlight Tualatin Valley’s agricultural and historical heritage, while creating accessible public art and showcasing the art of quilting.
