Watch for more information coming about the Barn Quilt Tour in Farmersville and how you can paint your own quilt square to put on your barn, house, in your shop, to hang on your building or to keep as a souvenir.

Let the fun begin!
Farmersville has a barn quilt trail. We have a new website that will be released in the next few weeks. We will have a map showing locations of barn quilt squares and we have a paint party coming up to kick off this tourist attraction for Farmersville. The Chamber of Commerce is almost ready to hang our square too.
DID YOU KNOW:
The Farmersville City Council approved changes in the sign ordinance on September 11, 2018 thus opening the way for the Barn Quilt Trails of Collin County to be established. Our hope is to encourage folks in Farmersville to create and display Barn Quilts on their properties so we can create a revenue stream as tourists come to the area to view our Barn Quilt Trails. We know these tourists will spend money at our shops, restaurants and gas stations. In December of 2018 we received our 501 (C) (3) status.
DID YOU KNOW?
Almost 10 years ago, Governor Rick Perry’s office issued a proclamation announcing the Quilt Trail initiative as part of the Houston International Quilt Show’s 35th year anniversary celebration. The goal of the initiative is to have a quilt trail connect all 254 counties of Texas.
WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT BARN QUILT TRAILS:
While the true economic benefits are difficult to document both the Fannin County Barn Quilt Trail and the Pineywoods Barn Quilt Trail have seen tourism increased in their respective areas as a result of their trails.
