The Miami County Barn Quilt Project began in 2007 when residents were asked to host quilt paintings on their barns. Debbie Robbins, who owns Robinhood Farms with her husband, Mike, is one of our local barn quilt owners. Their quilt, “Woodbox,” is ten years old and still looks great on their barn in Fletcher. The Miami County Barn Quilts are part of the Ohio quilt trail. The Adams County Quilt Sampler started the trend in 2001. Miami County has 67 barn quilts, all painted by hand by Mexican folk artist, Rafael Santoyo.
