Documentary online

The Story Quilter’s Threads documentary about the Ashtabula County Barn Quilt Trail is now available on YouTube in its entirety.

This 2017 film was made by Carl E. Feather for the barn quilt committee when he was working as lodging tax administrator for Ashtabula County. The film features interviews with barn quilt owners and makers, as well as trail co-founder Kathy McCarty. It includes footage of installing the first barn quilt, as well as raising barn quilts on covered bridges.

The Crescent Farm’s “Follow the Drinking Gourd” barn quilt has a moving story behind it. The documentary shares that and many other stories hidden in these patterns.
