Have you ever heard of barn quilts? This trend is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Local farms create beautiful “quilts” that they display proudly on their barns or other farm buildings for all to see. Some communities start entire groups and create a barn quilt trail through their area. These trails will take you through the delightful countryside while seeing these colorful features on barns all along the way. Luckily for us North Dakotans, we have two counties with barn quilt trails you can see yourself!
