New Barn Quilts

About the Quilter


Barbara H. Cline started creating quilts in her teens. Since then, she has had more than 31 years of experience teaching quilt making classes at a local sewing shop and creating beautiful quilts and patterns. Barbara worked at The Clothes Line fabric shop (now called Patchwork Plus) from fifth grade until she married and had children. She became a stay-at-home mother who pieced quilt tops to sell when she had time. When her youngest child entered kindergarten, she started working part-time at The Clothes Line again.

Barbara currently teaches classes at local quilt shops and loves to design and piece wall hangings and quilts from her home in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. Her quilts have been shown and have won ribbons in various quilt shows and contests.

Barbara comes from a close-knit Mennonite family of quilters. Every year the women gather for a sewing retreat, where they quilt, sew, and follow other creative pursuits. The family members and their quilts were featured in the Virginia Quilt Museum’s exhibition Five Generations of Mennonite Quilts. Learn more about what Barbra and her hobby at -

The History of The Quilt Trail

Barn Quilts are a concept which does not date back to far. It all began with Donna Sue Groves of Adams County, Ohio and her wish to honor her mother. Since the creation of the Barn Quilt much attention has been drawn towards them. Donna suggested that a "sampler" of twenty quilt squares could be created along a driving trail that would invite visitors to travel through the countryside. A committee of volunteers worked together to both plan the trail and to formulate guidelines as to how the project would be managed. Several barn owners signed on, and the work began. Click here to read more about the Quilt Trail.

Making a Barn Quilt

 You may be wandering, how do I make a barn quilt for myself. Here is an instructional video we found on YouTube showing you how to do just that. As you will notice, a lot of time and precision go in to designing Barn Quilts. If you are really wanting one for yourself but don't want to go to all the hassle of making your own, you know that we at Helmuth Builders have you covered. You can purchase a 2'x2' Quilt for $75 or 4'x4' Quilt for $200. If you would like for Barbra to customize a Quilt for you, that can be arranged.
