The mission of the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail is to connect our community and visitors by promoting Calvert County's agricultural heritage, local history and artistic talent through the exhibition of hand painted wooden quilt squares on barns and buildings throughout Calvert County.
A barn quilt is a replica of one square from a quilt, painted on
plywood, usually eight-by-eight feet, and mounted on a barn or building
for visitors to see. There are thousands of them all over the country,
and the Calvert County Trail will be the first in Southern Maryland and
the third in the State, joining Garrett and Carroll Counties.

Is it a beloved traditional quilt pattern that has meaning for the
sponsor of the square or is it an original designed by a local artist?
Another is the story of where the square hangs. Is it on a barn
belonging to a multigenerational farming family, a small business, a
museum or a private home? Each one is beautiful and tells a special
