Kentucky has long been known as a center for the sewing of colorful quilts in many patterns and designs.  In the past, quilts might have been warming a bed, gracing a couch, or flapping in the wind on a clothesline.  But over the past several years, painted quilt patterns on the sides of weathered barns in Kentucky have emerged as a new form of self-expression and cultural pride for rural residents.
