Barn quilts offer respite from lock down

Explore awakening flower gardens and perennial barn quilts this spring and summer as the nation emerges from pandemic restrictions. The Andover Public Library’s barn quilt and reading garden await your visit!

There has never been a better time to enjoy Ashtabula County’s barn quilt trail than this spring and summer. Gas is cheap, the landscape is greening and all of us could use a respite from the house without violating the social-distancing guidelines that have been implemented during the pandemic.

Use our website to plan your outing and map a route that will take you on a journey along scenic byways and through charming small towns and villages. Roll down the windows, take a deep breath and allow the sunshine to evaporate your winter blues and news overload.

You can download a map of the county and its quilts from this site or seek out a printed map in the 2020 Ashtabula County Visitors Guide as tourism businesses reopen. Or request a guide/map at the Ashtabula County Convention and Visitors Bureau website.
