New Barn Quilt Mural Installed June 2021
Check out our Barn Quilt Mural that was installed in June 2021 on The UrbanWoody Brewery stage at the corner of East Tiffin and South Main Streets. This mural was funded by the Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau through grant support from the Henry H. Geary, Jr. Memorial Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council. Many community members assisted with painting individual 2′ x 2′ squares that were installed together to form this colorful mural at a popular greenspace in downtown Fostoria.

Barn Quilt Painting Workshops & Custom Order Information
WHERE TO ORDER YOUR BARN QUILT LOCALLY
After holding two “sold-out” barn-quilt painting workshops with nationally-known expert Suzi Parron in 2018, the Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce that a local artist has now begun offering barn quilt painting workshops as well. “Barn Quilt Painting by Beverly” hosts barn quilt painting workshops that have all been “sold-out” too. Bev Lang gives instructions how to paint popular barn quilt designs. The workshops include a pre-primed 2’ x 2’ exterior grade board as well as the paints and foam brushes required to complete a barn quilt during the workshop. Step-by-step instructions will be given on how to draft, tape and paint the barn quilt square. Attendees are asked to bring a yardstick, a pencil, eraser, cutter, a blow dryer and painter’s tape. The yellow or green “Frog tape” brand works best, but blue Scotch brand is also acceptable. You will leave with a finished quilt block. Pre-registration and payment is required in advance.
For the upcoming class schedule, contact Bev Lang, 1401 Fairway Drive, cell: 567-245-5549, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, Bev paints custom squares for people who do not wish to paint their own.
Patricia Brady of Brady’s Delicate Creations Barn Quilting will be hosting a booth at the 2021 Fostoria Farmers’ Markets to sell barn quilt squares as well as to take orders for custom barn quilt squares. Her contact info: PBrady2@woh.rr.com at 111 N US 23 in Fostoria. You may reach her at 419-939-3111.
Workshop attendees and barn quilt purchasers are encouraged to place their barn quilt squares on the local “trail”. The ladies will provide a Fostoria Ohio Barn Quilt Trail Release Form that will be used by the Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau to promote the locations of barn quilt squares in the area.
