Berthoud Colorado Barn Quilt Trail

Mission:

The Berthoud Barn Quilt Trail project creates a community that illuminates the business, ranching and agriculture family heritage and local businesses of the area in a creative and innovative way. This will attract visitors to the area to tour the quilt artwork displayed on barns and other buildings, and in turn generate more sales tax revenues for local businesses by bringing more people to Berthoud.

We look forward to these visitors eating and shopping in Berthoud while they are here.

WELCOME to the inaugural year of the Berthoud Barn Quilt Trail hosted by the Berthoud Area Chamber of Commerce in an effort to celebrate the local business, ranching and agricultural heritage and, ultimately support local business.

This quilt trail is inspired by many other successful quilt trails throughout the United States. There are over five counties in Colorado that enjoy active Quilt Trails that contribute to the support of their local economies and celebrate local heritage. Quilt trails have generated visits from thousands of history buffs and shoppers annually. The cost to you to participate is minimal but the reward for your involvement in the community is significant. In our inaugural year we hope to begin a tradition that will encourage community spirit and attract visitors to enjoy the camaraderie and beauty of our town.

How Can You Participate?

Complete a Barn Quilt Trail application. Return the application to the Berthoud Area Chamber of Commerce with payment for desired quilt kit size. You have a choice of designing your own quilt pattern or choosing one of our 12 pre-approved patterns. Quilt patterns will be used only once for the entire barn quilt trail project. Once your design is approved (original or pre-approved), the chamber will connect with you to discuss what direction you’d like to go (plywood or bond board).

Wooden quilt block kits will be offered in various sizes from 1’x1’, 2’x2’  3’x3’and 4’x4’ blocks. Kits will include guidelines for transferring quilt design to block, painting techniques, and “how to” instructions for hanging the final project. The Berthoud Area Chamber of Commerce will be happy to tutor you on where and how to begin. After the personal instructions you will be able to create, work on and complete your barn quilt on your own.

Once the quilt block is completed, it must be approved once again by the Chamber Barn Quilt Committee. Then it can be prominently displayed and listed on a map with all the quilt block locations on the trail. Our goal is to have the 12 quilts on our barn quilt trail website and on our first map in 2019. If you need a list of artists that can help you paint or handymen that can help you hang your quilt, please contact the chamber.
