Block #6 on the trail went up on June 8, 2015. This old barn is on the Jossy Farm, 31965 NW Beach Road, Hillsboro. Bob Jossy wanted a tree block and this farm has wonderful peach, apple and pear orchards.

Quilt Barn Trail in Oregon’s Tualatin Valley

The Westside Quilters Guild (WQG) embarked on a multi-year project in late 2013 to create a Quilt Barn Trail in Oregon’s Tualatin Valley. The Quilt Barn Trail in the Tualatin Valley consists of large painted quilt blocks mounted on barns or buildings. The blocks are mounted on barns and non-residential buildings outside the Washington County Urban Growth Boundary, with a small number of blocks inside the city limits of towns that allowed them. In 2019, they reached their goal of installing 60 blocks throughout the county. All blocks are hand-painted, 8 ft or 4 ft-square quilt blocks, made using high quality materials for longevity.

The Quilt Barn Trail highlights the county’s agricultural and historical heritage, promotes area tourism, provides public art in unexpected places, and showcases the art of quilting. Brochures and maps are available in visitor centers, libraries and other locations, as well as online. Funding for our trail was provided by Westside Quilters Guild, grants, sponsors and donations. No public money has been spent on our trail. Oregon residents and visitors can use downloadable maps to navigate the trail.
