Hey there! 

 As we eagerly wait for spring, let us have some fun by creating beautiful artwork for our gardens and homes. Recently, I watched a heartwarming documentary called "Pieced Together" about a woman's love for her mother that inspired the American Quilt Square Trail movement. 


The American Barn Trail is the beauty of creative quilting by showcasing painted wooded blocks on barns and other buildings throughout the United States. The artistic trail became a popular tourist attraction, with people traveling around the country to see these creative, beautiful, thought-provoking, and engaging, quirky works of art. This movement has brought joy and unity to farmers, backyard hobby farmers, and many American states by showcasing the beauty of farming and as a symbol of pride and tradition for many communities.

Donna Sue Groves, the woman in question, celebrated her mother, Nina Maxine, a celebrated quilter, by hanging a painted traditional quilt block print on a wooden panel for all to admire. Her idea was so beloved that barn quilters came together to create more of these works of art, starting the American Barn Trails.

I was inspired by this story and thought of creating a barn quilt for my chicken coop. So, I am excited to start a Lala's Farm Chicken Coop Quilt Trail with YOU on Instagram.
