Flint Hills Quilt Barn Trail

Riley County’s First Barn Quilt is on the Enoch Persons Barn at the Lazy T. Our latest barn quilt is a rooster, painted by Reva Boswell and located of course, on our chicken coop.

Barn quilts are quilt square designs which are painted on wooden sheets and then affixed to barns and other farm structures.  Quilt barn trails for visitors to follow have sprung up throughout the country. Our barn quilt design is taken from a quilt that was made by Chris Wilson's great-great-grandmother, a pattern known as Lancaster Rose. It is attached to the ranch's historic stone and wood barn. The painting of the barn quilt was done by Ralph Fontenot, an art teacher at Lee Elementary School in Manhattan, in support of the Flint Hills quilt barn trail. The American Quilt Barn Trail Movement is the largest public art movement in the nation, with more than 3,000 barn quilt blocks in 27 states.
