Pennsylvania Hand Embroidery Pattern


It is commonly believed that the American tradition of barn quilts began in Pennsylvania with the German and Swiss immigrants who settled the Pennsylvania Dutch area. These new settlers painted colorful designs on their barns in patterns that were thought to bring good fortune. Today, barn quilts of all shapes and sizes adorn many of the barns and houses around the Pennsylvania countryside.

This simple embroidery pattern features the Pennsylvania state outline with a bright red barn decorated with a star motif barn quilt, a large tree, and rows of fields in the foreground. This pattern uses only a handful of basic stitches and is suitable for all levels.
