Photo essay by Lauren Wood

Perhaps you’ve noticed them around Northeast Mississippi — on barns, buildings and downtown sidewalks. Those vibrant square patterns are called barn quilts, and there are a few different trails in the region. Based on traditional quilt patterns, barn quilts consist of one geometric quilt block design painted onto a solid wood board. Take a drive through Caledonia, New Albany, Columbus or Starkville and you’ll find them, dotting the landscapes with pops of color and local character.
